Jamie Foxx and his daughter Corinne Foxx are set to host the brand new game show ‘We Are Family’. Jamie and Corinne Foxx said in a joint statement: “We are thrilled to be developing We Are Family with Jeff Apploff and our friends at Fox Entertainment after so much success with six seasons of Beat Shazam. We hope this show brings as much fun to audiences at home as we’ve had creating it when it premieres next year.” This marks the second game show the father/daughter duo will host for Fox. They also cohost ‘Beat Shazam’, which returns for its sixth season on Tuesday, May 23.
We Are Family will see non-famous relatives of celebrities performing duets with their hidden famous family member while a studio audience comprised of 100 contestants plays through multiple rounds of clues and gameplay. Players can win up to $100,000 each by correctly guessing which celebrity the performer is related to before they are revealed. Celebrities appearing on We Are Family will range from actors and musicians to professional athletes and more. The series will be co-produced by Apploff Entertainment and Fox’s in-house unscripted studio, Fox Alternative Entertainment, which created the program. Jeff Apploff and Jamie Foxx will executive produce, with Matilda Zoltowski serving as showrunner and exec producer.
Jamie was recently hospitalized following a health scare while in Atlanta filming the Netflix movie Back in Action; at the time, Corinne announced in an Instagram post that her dad had “experienced a medical complication.” Last week, Corinne shared an update on her father’s health, addressing false rumors: “Update from the family: Sad to see how the media runs wild. My Dad has been out of the hospital for weeks, recuperating. In fact, he was playing pickleball yesterday! Thanks for everyone’s prayers and support! We have an exciting work announcement coming next week too!”
