HOT FROM FOX...

GET READY, AMERICA! YOU'RE ABOUT TO GET "MOBBED" THURSDAY, MARCH 31, ON FOX

Unscripted Special Hosted by Howie Mandel Mixes "Flash Mob" Concept with Hidden Camera Elements To Provide Surprise Reveals to Unknowing Participants

The new unscripted special MOBBED will premiere Thursday, March 31 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) following AMERICAN IDOL on FOX. Host Howie Mandel ("America's Got Talent," "Deal or No Deal") puts a hidden-camera spin on the "flash mob" concept. Mandel and hundreds of strangers will help special guests plan extraordinary surprises for friends, family members, loved ones or co-workers. These unknowing participants will be shocked and stunned by surprise performances that lead up to fantastic reveals that include a husband learning that his wife is pregnant, an applicant finding out that she got the job and a marriage proposal, among others.

"It's so exciting to be a part of this huge musical spectacle never before attempted on this scale," said Mandel.

Throughout the hour, the guests will be shown prepping for the event - rehearsing their routines and refining their speeches - all while receiving guidance from host Mandel. Then, on the day of the big event - with the hidden cameras rolling - the detailed plan comes to fruition and suddenly explodes into a song-and-dance spectacle they are sure never to forget. What begins as a few dancers evolves into a grand-scale performance that wraps up with a life-changing announcement for the participants like nothing ever seen on TV.

MOBBED is produced by Alevy Productions and Angel City Factory. Howie Mandel, Chris Cowan, Jean-Michel Michenaud, Mike Marks, Darryl Trell, Howard Kitrosser, Kevin Healey and Michael Rotenberg serve as executive producers. It is based on a format created by Mandel, Trell and Kitrosser.

[EDITOR'S NOTE: MOBBED replaces the previously announced preview of the UNTITLED JAMIE FOXX/AFFION CROCKETT PROJECT (wt), which will premiere this June.]
