NBC has renewed its unique variety show, I Can Do That for an eight-episode second season.
In season one, six of America’s brightest entertainers (The Blue Man Group, Penn and Teller, The Harlem Globetrotters, Nicole Scherzinger, Avenue Q and Snoop Dogg) came together to compete and showcase their talents with breathtaking and unique acts — featuring skills they did not even know they had.
There were no judges – an ultimate entertainer was chosen by audience vote – with Nicole Scherzinger winning the audience voting in season one.
NBC has ordered 6 hour-long episodes of comedy/variety series I Can Do That (working title), based on an Israeli format, to be hosted by Marlon Wayans. Celebrities participating are acclaimed dancer and choreographer Cheryl Burke, superstar recording artists Joe Jonas, Nicole Scherzinger and Ciara, national standup comedian Jeff Dye and actor Alan Ritchson.
The tag for the series is that these celebrities will be asked to ‘bravely display entertainment skills they didn’t even know they had.’
I Can Do That is scheduled to premiere this summer. For further details, follow the jump.
