Celebrity talent show will bow April 8

CBS will bow its previously announced celeb talent competition “Secret Talents of the Stars” on April 8.

Eye announced the premiere via a series of promos it ran during its Monday night comedies. Ads called the show a new “CBS special,” though the net actually plans to run seven episodes of the project, which involves contestants squaring off against each other in a competition.

Those slated to participate include George Takei (country singing), Clint Black (standup comedy) and Danny Bonaduce (circus acts). Skein will inherit the 10 p.m. Tuesday slot currently occupied by “Jericho,” which wraps its season next week.

Robyn Nash and Don Weiner are executive producers of “Secret Talents of the Stars.”
