Fox Greenlights 'Drinking With The Stars'
Fox Greenlights "Drinking With The Stars"

HOLLYWOOD (CAP) - Fox has given the okay to begin production on the pilot for Drinking With The Stars, yet another of the network's spoof-like reality shows. This one is a direct spin-off of ABC's wildly popular hit, Dancing With The Stars, which has been gracing the airwaves since the summer of 2005.

"When football season winds to a close, we're looking for new ideas to engage those fans who have given us hours of their time each week," said Fox TV Distribution Services Coordinator Pat Melham. "So when Rocket Science Labs approached us with this idea, we were gung-ho."

Drinking With The Stars pairs up some of the nation's heaviest drinkers with celebrity counterparts, lets the alcohol flow, and turns on the microphones. Contestants will be judged on a variety of physical and mental challenges based on how much they drink, with one pair being voted off each week until just one pair remains.

"To be clear, this is not a show just about how much beer can you down," said Melham. "Contestants will need to show skill across a wide range of alcoholic beverages. This show is about dexterity and fortitude, not glut."

Melham said he expects there to be plenty of laughs throughout each episode as the contestants are free to talk about whatever they'd like while they're drinking and competing. As such, he said the show won't be "for the faint of heart, or Jews."

A number of celebrities have already agreed to appear on the first season of the show, including Lindsay Lohan, Mel Gibson, Paris Hilton, Tom Wopat and Mike Tyson, among others. Sports stars Koren Robinson and Marcus Coleman are expected to help round out the celebrity cast of 16, although they have not yet officially signed on to appear.

Robin Williams has been tapped as the show's host, the first episode of which is set to air immediately following the Pro Bowl at the end of the regular NFL season.
