Jamie Foxx has been making major headlines lately. After his daughter, Corinne, revealed he was hospitalized for an undisclosed health issue, everyone wanted to know more. He was originally filming a movie with Cameron Diaz and it halted due to his sickness. Now, amid reports of the actor being in and out of the hospital, a new game show has been announced that will have him as a host.
The news comes days after Corinne confirmed that he was out of the hospital. In a statement released this week, the Foxx duo said, “We are thrilled to be developing ‘We Are Family’ with Jeff Apploff and our friends at FOX Entertainment. We hope this show brings as much fun to audiences at home as we’ve had creating it when it premieres next year.”
The show will feature celebrities and their non-famous family members. The two will duet but the celebrity will be hidden. 100 contestants will compete to guess who the hidden celebrity is. The winner is to receive $100,000.
This wouldn’t be the duo’s first time hosting a show. The Foxxes previously hosted the music game show Beat Shazam for the last five seasons. Due to Jamie’s health problems, the two are currently replaced by Nick Cannon and Kelly Osbourne.
We Are Family is slated to premiere sometime in 2024.
