ABC has announced (most of) the cast of its upcoming celebrity diving show Splash.
Formerly named Celebrity Diving, the series will feature 10 celebrities doing their best not to belly-flop with the help of Greg Louganis.
Showtime's competitive juices aren't limited to the arena of scripted entertainment. Now the pay cable network is challenging HBO's Real Sports franchise by turning to masters of long-form narrative with the launch of 60 Minutes Sports (10/9c). Among the segments in Wednesday's premiere: a closer-up profile by Bob Simon of FC Barcelona soccer star Lionel Messi, whose prowess at 25 was demonstrated in last Sunday's 60 Minutes piece on the Barcelona team.
Watch out, ABC. Fox is going diving with the stars too.
The network will premiere Stars in Danger: The High Dive next month, a two-hour special featuring eight celebrities learning Olympic-style dives, both solo and synchronized.
