Fox Orders Celeb-Driven Unscripted Series from Steve Carell

Format has already seen success in European territories

Fox has greenlit “Slide Show,” a celeb-driven unscripted comedy from Steve Carell and Shine America. Net ordered eight episodes for “Slide Show’s” freshman run.

Based on an international format from Arthur Essebag, “Slide Show” pits teams of celebs and comedians against one another in a series of showdowns that hilariously test the mind and body. Competitors will take part in song, dance and sketch challenges often while navigating the show’s trademark set, tilted at a 22.5 degree angle.

“I think unscripted television should be outrageous and audacious by definition. Unfortunately, not much is, as of late,” said Fox Entertainment chairman Kevin Reilly. “’Slide Show’ is the most ridiculously fun and out-there thing I’ve seen in quite a while. Steve Carell knows a thing or two about big laughs and I am really happy to be working with Steve again, and the team at Shine, to bring ‘Slide Show’ to Fox.”

“Slide Show’s” format, titled “Anything Goes,” debuted in France in January 2012 and averaged almost a 40% audience share on TF1. Format has since traveled to Australia, Portugal and Denmark.

“Slide Show” will be produced by Shine America with Carell’s banner, Carousel TV. Carell, Thom Hinkle, Eden Gaha and Paul Franklin will exec produce.
