Fox in the US has ordered Domino Masters, a new competition format being hosted by Modern Family star Eric Stonestreet.
The format features teams of domino enthusiasts competing in a series of challenges to impress judges. In-house studio Fox Alternative Entertainment produces, with the show set to debut on the US network during the 2021/22 season.
It will then become available on sibling AVOD streamer Tubi. Gail Berman, Danny Schrader and Hend Baghdady will serve as executive producers.
“Over the past year, fans of dominoes and chain reaction games took their creativity and passion to social media platforms, with outrageous and extraordinary displays, reimagining these classic games and introducing them to a whole new audience,” said Rob Wade, president of alternative entertainment & specials at Fox Entertainment.
“Domino Masters will take this passion to a whole new level in a truly original format. And Eric is the perfect host to harness the fun and excitement, as viewers witness true artists creating some of the most innovative domino topples ever envisioned.”
It joins an expanding slate of unscripted shows for Fox alongside The Masked Singer, The Masked Dancer, I Can See Your Voice and Cherries Wild. Earlier this year, Wade told TBI that US and European networks needed to take more risks in their format commissioning.
This article has been amended to clarify that Domino Masters is not connected to Endemol Shine North America (ESNA)’s format, Domino Effect.
