FOX ORDERS EIGHT ONE-HOUR EPISODES OF UNSCRIPTED COMPETITION SERIES "SUPERHUMAN"

Kal Penn to Return as Host

Now Casting Ordinary People with Extraordinary Abilities! - fox.com/superhuman/superhuman-casting

FOX has ordered eight one-hour episodes of SUPERHUMAN, the unscripted competition series that tests the abilities of ordinary people to use their extraordinary skills. The episodes were picked up following a two-hour special which aired Jan. 4, 2016. Kal Penn will return as host for the all-new episodes.

Online casting calls have begun for individuals who possess distinct, nearly super-human abilities in fields such as memory, hearing, taste, touch, smell and sight. For anyone looking to showcase their remarkable talents - take this first step by registering on the casting website at fox.com/superhuman/superhuman-casting.

The original special featured 12 ordinary people with extraordinary skills competing for a grand prize of $100,000. Penn, along with a guest panel, provided insights and comedic commentary about the competitors' unique abilities, while guiding the studio audience, who ultimately decided who took home the title of SUPERHUMAN and the $100,000 grand prize.

Originally produced by Endemol Shine Germany as "The Brain" (currently in its sixth season), the competition series has been a breakout format globally in China (third season), Italy (second season), Brazil (second season), Spain and, most recently, France (third season), where the premiere delivered top ratings for its network. Following the success in Germany and Spain, the networks launched a kids' version of the popular format. The U.S. marks the seventh territory where the format will launch, and further global interest is picking up.

Rob Smith and Georgie Hurford-Jones, with the production company Endemol Shine North America, and David Friedman will return to executive-produce the new episodes.
