In a statement, Anderson says he “jumped at the opportunity to host We Are Family and can’t wait for you to see all the celebrities, their relatives and the many surprises we have in store this season. And with my mama by my side, you never know what’s going to happen!”
According to Fox’s official release, We Are Family — set to premiere on Wednesday, Jan. 3, 2024 — will “showcase non-famous relatives of celebrities performing amazing solo performances and duets with their hidden famous family member.”
But wait, there’s more: “We Are Family will feature a studio audience entirely comprised of 100 contestants playing through multiple rounds of clues and gameplay to win up to $150,000 each by correctly guessing which celebrity the performer is related to before they are revealed. Celebrities appearing will range from musicians and professional athletes to actors and beyond. Viewers will be encouraged to play along at home with their families to see if they can figure out the famous face behind the talented relative!”
