Gloria Estefan is about to meet her ultimate fan…
CBS’ new musical game show, Superfan, has set the roster of musicians participating in its upcoming six-episode series, including the 64-year-old Cuban singer/songwriter.
In addition to Estefan, the artists confirmed to participate include Kelsea Ballerini, Little Big Town, LL Cool J, Pitbull and Shania Twain.
Also confirmed to host the musical game show are series executive producer Keltie Knight and CBS Morning’s Nate Burleson.
Production on the unscripted original begins this Friday in Los Angeles. A premiere date has yet to be set.
Superfan is billed as a musical spectacle disguised as a game show. It will feature contestants vying in multiple rounds of play to prove they are the ultimate fan.
In each one-hour episode, a different musical artist will select one deserving superfan to win a once in a lifetime prize.
CBS ordered the series in February. It is produced by Raquel Productions, the CBS-owned division that makes Tough As Nails.
Anton Goss, a production designer who has worked on shows such as Match Game and Drop the Mic will dress the stage; Suzanne Bender, who has worked on America’s Got Talent and Lip Sync Battle, will serve as talent producer and Jacqui Pittman is casting.
