Faves to rerun ‘Race’

CBS to air 'All-Stars' skein in 2007

CBS is giving “The Amazing Race” the all-star treatment.

Net Tuesday confirmed the upcoming 11th edition of the Emmy-winning reality skein, produced by Jerry Bruckheimer and Bertram van Munster, will feature cast members from previous cycles of the show. Production on “The Amazing Race: All-Stars” began last week in Miami and will premiere in first-quarter 2007.

“Race” becomes the third CBS unscripted skein to go all-star. “Survivor” began the trend a few years ago, while “Big Brother” followed suit last summer.

A CBS spokesman confirmed the all-star nature of the next “Race” but declined comment on which past cast members will return.

However, insiders said Rob and Amber — who appeared on “Race” after appearing on two editions of “Survivor” — will be given another shot at the top prize. Duo have wrapped lensing on their upcoming Fox Reality Channel skein, “Rob and Amber: Against the Odds,” which debuts in January.

They are expected to square off against Joyce and Uchenna, their two chief opponents in season seven of “Race.” Latter team narrowly won that edition.

Also lacing up again: David and Mary, the plain-spoken coalminer and his wife from Kentucky.

Not expected on the “All-Star” race: Jonathan and Victoria, the feuding couple whose antics landed them on a Dr. Phil primetime special. Chip and Kim, two of the most popular former “Race” cast members, won’t appear either.

Most editions of the “Race” are expected to be represented on the all-star edition, save for the much-panned family edition.

Bruckheimer, van Munster, Jonathan Littman and Hayma Screech Washington are exec producers of “Race.” Skein is produced by Bruckheimer TV and Earthview, in association with Touchstone TV and Amazing Race Prods.
