"We're excited to watch our all-star cast rise to the challenges ahead in such a fresh, new way," said Paul Telegdy, NBC's president of alternative programming (quotes courtesy of IndieWire). "Our viewers are going to fall in love with how these natural born entertainers push themselves outside of their comfort zones to put on a spectacular show every week."
CiCi along with Cheryl Burke, Joe Jonas, who is currently on tour with Iggy Azalea and Tinashe, Nicole Scherzinger, stand-up comedian Jeff Dye and actor Alan Ritchson (The Hunger Games: Catching Fire) are locked in for the first five episodes.
