Unscripted Special Hosted by Howie Mandel
Mixes Flash Mob Concept with Hidden Camera Elements
To Provide Surprise Reveals to Unknowing Participants
Just in time for Thanksgiving, viewers can gobble up a new installment of the unscripted special MOBBED, which will air Wednesday, Nov. 23 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) following THE X FACTOR on FOX. Hosted by Howie Mandel, MOBBED puts a hidden-camera spin on the “flash mob” concept.
In each installment of this series, Mandel and thousands of strangers will help a special guest plan an extraordinary surprise for a friend, family member, loved one or co-worker. The unknowing participant will be shocked and stunned by a surprise performance that will lead up to a fantastic reveal.
Throughout the hour, the guests will be seen getting ready for the event – rehearsing their routines and refining their speeches – all while receiving guidance from host Mandel. Then, on the day of the big affair – with the hidden cameras rolling – the detailed plan comes to fruition and suddenly explodes into a song-and-dance spectacle that no one will ever forget.
