Mayim Bialik to Host Remote Celebrity Talent Show for TBS

Mayim Bialik hopes to make a splash with her new hosting gig.

The “Big Bang Theory” alum is set to MC “Celebrity Show-Off,” a remote talent show featuring a lineup of celebrities that has been commissioned from TBS.

Each of the 10 episodes of the remote series will give celebrities the opportunity to see who can produce the most compelling content from the comfort of their homes. The list of talents signed up for the showcase so far includes Diplo, Ja Rule, Action Bronson, Gabi Butler, Dwight Howard, Travis Kelce, Nene Leakes, Jason Mraz, Kevin Smith, Tori Spelling, Bella Thorne, Rumer, Scout and Tallulah . Willis.

“Wait and see what this casting pulls off,” said Corie Henson, executive vice president and head of unscripted programming for TBS, TNT and truTV. “Whether it’s sharing new talents, pulling off crazy stunts, or even bringing in special guests, the celebrity shows are creatively ambitious with a do-it-yourself charm – as our actors all work within the limits of what they have at home.”

“Celebrity Show-Off” is based on the popular Korean show “My Little Television” and comes from the executive producer of “The Masked Singer.”

“After discovering ‘The Masked Singer’ and introducing it to American audiences, I was on the lookout for interesting and innovative Korean formats. ‘Celebrity Show-Off’ is exactly that – a fresh, fun series unlike anything else on TV,” said executive producer Craig Plestis. “It’s a cutting-edge take on the celebrity contest that will allow viewers to see their favorite stars in a whole new way and put a smile on their face during these trying times.”

Plestis isn’t the only producer bringing Korean content to Hollywood, as this show represents the latest in a growing collection of series hailing from Korea.

The original “Celebrity Show-Off” is produced by Munhwa Broadcasting Corporation, and this new version is produced by Plestis for Smart Dog Media. Tom Forman is also on board as an EP, alongside jenny dally and Jon Beyer. Aliyah Silverstein will serve as executive producer and showrunner.

Plestis and Smart Dog Media are represented by Paradigm.

“We’ve all seen shows where stars are produced to dance, sing or compete. It’s not that. These celebrities are raw and unfiltered and no one knows what they will do next,” Forman added. “That means doing the show is the hardest thing ever, and watching it is pure joy.”

It’s also not Bialik’s first show since “Big Bang Theory” ended, as she once again teams up with her TBBT co-star Jim Parsons in a multi-cam Fox comedy.
