Music superfans will get the chance to show off their fandom on the all-new CBS game show, super fan.
According to Deadline, the eye network has ordered the unscripted series, which will see music superfans test their skills to prove they’re a certain artist’s number one supporter. The series is described as a “music show disguised as a game show”.
The show will include multiple rounds of play where contestants must compete against each other to progress through the competition. Whoever makes it to the final round will then have the chance to prove they are the ultimate fan. The winner of each episode will be deemed a “superfan” and will win the ultimate experience with the featured artist.
Jodi Roth, former senior vice president of specials at CBS, entertainment tonight correspondent Keltie Knight, and The misery index executive producer Jack Martin is behind the project. All three will serve as executive producers, with Martin serving as showrunner.
The series also brought in a number of game show veterans to help with production. Anton Goss (Match Game, Drop The Mic) is on board as production designer, Suzanne Bender (America’s Got Talent, Lip Sync Battle) serves as talent producer, and Jacqui Pitman (Confrontation) will start the series.
Roth left her position as CBS’ senior vice president of specials in 2020 and formed her own production company with Knight, titled Yacht Money. Knight is also known for creating the podcast and E! To display Lady Gang.
