NEW GIG: Ciara On The Set Of New NBC Variety Show “I Can Do That!,” Co-Stars Marlon Wayans & Nicole Scherzinger
Ciara’s fans will be able to watch the “I Bet” singer in a new comedy variety series headed to NBC this summer. PEOPLEreports that NBC has ordered six hour-long episodes of “I Can Do That!”, a new comedy variety series that pits six celebrities against one another while they perform skills that they never knew they had.
Scary Movie star Marlon Wayans will host the weekly competition, which has also tapped “Dancing with the Stars” proCheryl Burke, singer Joe Jonas, former Pussycat Dolls leader Nicole Scherzinger, stand-up comedian Jeff Dye and actor Alan Ritchson (The Hunger Games: Catching Fire) to compete against Ciara.
Ciara tweeted a pic from her first day on set (above) saying, “My Favorites. I Have The Best Friends And Team. #FirstDayAtWork #NBC #ICanDoThat So Excited. Need To Go To Sleep And Get Ready For Tomorrow’s Task! Good Night!”
“I Can Do That!” is a worldwide brand and already airs in more than 15 countries, including Italy, Brazil, Spain, Finland and Mexico.
“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. “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.”
In other Ciara news, she shot a video for her Harmony Samuels-produced single “I Bet.” The single appears on her forthcoming album Jackie.
