The 29-year-old performer and the five other show regulars — singers Joe Jonas and Nicole Scherzinger, choreographer Cheryl Burke, actor Alan Ritchson and comedian Jeff Dye — will compete for the title of “ultimate entertainer.”
Cast members will be paired together to put on weekly skits with the help of magicians, stunt performers, acrobats, and other professionals in different fields. CiCi tweeted earlier this week that she’s “pumped” to be on the show, along with photos from the set.
NBC has ordered six episodes of the hour-long program, which was developed by Isreal’s Armoza Formats. Wayans is an executive producer as well as Audrey Morrissey of NBC’s The Voice, Matilda Zoltowski of Dancing With the Stars and Armoza founder Avi Armoza.
“The cast is amazing,” Wayans said in a statement. “It’s going to be a lot of fun to work with people whose work I admire and to see them in a different light.”
I Can Do It is slated to debut this summer.
