Howie Mandel is getting mobbed up for his next hidden camera TV show.
After Howie Do It for NBC, Mandel’s production shingle, Alevy Productions, is making Mobbed, a flash mob reality show for Fox, to air on March 31.
The one-hour special will feature people springing good news on friends and family via a flash mob, where a group of dancers surprises onlookers with a performance.
All the drama, hosted by comedian and Deal or No Deal host Mandel, will be captured via hidden cameras.
Banijay-owned Angel City Factory is coproducing Mobbed with Alevy Productions. The show is based on a format created by Mandel, and fellow exec producers Darryl Trell and Howard Kitrosser. Other EPs on the special include Chris Cowan, Jean-Michel Michenaud, Mike Marks, Kevin Healey and Michael Rotenberg.
