Fox Greenlights ‘The Masked Dancer’

Series to Be Produced by Ellen DeGeneres

Fox is partnering with Ellen DeGeneres to produce “The Masked Dancer,” a new celebrity competition show spun-off from “The Masked Singer” and inspired by a segment featured on “The Ellen Show.” In this all-new format, celebrity contestants will perform unique dances, while covered from head-to-toe in elaborate costumes and face masks, leaving audiences to guess their identities.

“We’re still blown away by ‘The Masked Siner’s’ massive impact on pop culture, but when Ellen debuted her own inventive segment, “The Masked Dancer,” on her show, we were truly amazed,” said Rob Wade, President, Alternative Entertainment & Specials, Fox Entertainment. “We are thrilled to partner with Ellen on this new format and take ‘The Masked Dancer’ to a whole new creative level.”

Produced by FOX Alternative Entertainment, “The Masked Dancer” is executive-produced by Ellen DeGeneres and Warner Bros. Unscripted & Alternative Television.
