ABC ANNOUNCES THE PREMIERE OF NEW SUMMER SERIES "SING YOUR FACE OFF"

"Sing Your Face Off" Will Be Paired with Previously Announced "Bet On Your Baby," Making ABC All Original on Saturday Nights

New Premiere Dates for "Rookie Blue" and "The Quest" Also Announced

ABC announced the premiere of new summer series "Sing Your Face Off," on Saturday, May 31 from 9:00-11:00 p.m. Two all-new episodes will air back-to-back in that two-hour time period each week. The show will be paired with "Bet On Your Baby," which as previously announced, will debut that same night at 8:00 p.m., making for all-original programming on Saturday nights on the network.

In addition, new premiere dates were announced for returning summer drama "Rookie Blue" on Thursday, June 19 at 9:00 p.m., ET and new alternative series "The Quest," on Thursday, July 31 at 8:00 p.m., ET (they had previously been announced as premiering July 17 and June 19, respectively).

"Sing Your Face Off" is a talent variety competition featuring celebrities who are transformed and trained to perform as a legendary musical icon. Over the course of the series, the five celebrities - Sebastian Bach/legendary rock star from the band Skid Row, Landry Fields/NBA's Toronto Raptors, Jon Lovitz/comedian, actor, singer, China Anne McClain/Disney Channel's "A.N.T. Farm," and Lisa Rinna/"Days of Our Lives" - will take on the identity of an iconic music performer. The celebrities could find themselves transformed into someone far older, younger or even someone of the opposite sex.

From the hours in the makeup chair to the days spent with choreographers and vocal coaches, each show will feature the complete transformation - not just physical - the celebrities will embody everything about the assigned icon - their walk, their talk, and their distinguishing mannerisms leading up to the live performance in front of the studio audience. Viewers will get the chance to see each of the celebrities portray multiple musical performers during the series -- such as Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga, Michael Jackson, Pavarotti, Pitbull, Britney Spears, and Tina Turner to name a few.

John Barrowman ("Arrow," "Torchwood") is the host. Debbie Gibson and Darrell Hammond are the primary judges, while guest judges along the way will include David Allen Grier, RuPaul, Carnie Wilson, Richard Simmons, Tom Arnold, and Carmen Electra.

Based on Endemol's global hit "Your Face Sounds Familiar," "Sing Your Face Off" is produced by Endemol USA. Georgie Hurford-Jones ("America's Got Talent," "Britain's Got Talent") is Executive Producer.
