SAN FRANCISCO, December 2, 2020 - Tubi (www.tubi.tv), FOX Entertainment's free streaming platform, today announced that the all-new unscripted series THE MASKED DANCER, hosted by Craig Robinson and based on the #1 entertainment show on television, THE MASKED SINGER, will be joining its massive library of 26,000 movies and television series - completely free. The series premieres Sunday, Dec. 27 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/5:00-6:00 PM PT, Live to all Time Zones) on FOX, following the NFL ON FOX doubleheader. It joins an increasing number of FOX programs added to Tubi, including THE MASKED SINGER, GORDON RAMSAY'S 24 HOURS TO HELL AND BACK and LEGO MASTERS. Episodes of THE MASKED DANCER will be made available on Tubi shortly after their linear premiere.
"Tubi viewers can discover, rewatch or catch up on brand-new episodes of FOX's premium unscripted series, with THE MASKED DANCER as the latest of several new titles to come," said Adam Lewinson, Tubi's Chief Content Officer. "We're thrilled to be a natural extension and free destination for FOX's rapidly expanding unscripted slate."
Based on television's #1 entertainment show, FOX's THE MASKED SINGER, and inspired by a popular segment featured on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," the all-new celebrity competition series THE MASKED DANCER is hosted by comedian/actor Craig Robinson ("Ghosted," "The Office") and features celebrity panelists Ken Jeong (THE MASKED SINGER, I CAN SEE YOUR VOICE), world-famous choreographer and singer Paula Abdul, actor and the former "Giraffe" Mask on THE MASKED SINGER Brian Austin Green and actress and singer Ashley Tisdale. THE MASKED DANCER will feature celebrity contestants shaking their tail feathers while covered from head-to-toe in elaborate costumes and face masks, leaving audiences to guess their identities. Costumed celebrities will be joined on stage by masked partners and back-up dancers, as they perform a series of dances together; spanning from hip-hop to salsa, jazz to tap dancing and more. When it comes to dance styles, the sky is the limit. Each week, a series of clues will be sprinkled throughout packages, costumes and routines, leading the panelists one step closer to figuring out which famous faces are freestyling behind the masks.
