KAL PENN TO HOST "SUPERHUMAN" MONDAY, JANUARY 4, ON FOX; NEW TWO-HOUR COMPETITION SPECIAL TESTS THE LIMITS OF ORDINARY PEOPLE WITH EXTRAORDINARY ABILITIES

Heavyweight Champion Mike Tyson, Actress and Comedian Mary Lynn-Rajskub and Neurosurgeon Dr. Rahul Jandial Are Guest-Panelists

Get ready to have your mind blown when SUPERHUMAN, the new two-hour special hosted by actor Kal Penn, premieres Monday, Jan. 4 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. The jaw-dropping special will test the abilities of 12 ordinary people to use their extraordinary skills to win a $100,000 grand prize. Each of the contestants possesses a distinct, nearly super-human ability in fields such as memory, hearing, taste, touch, smell and sight. The contestants will be challenged to push their skills to the limit to determine if they are SUPERHUMAN enough to win the $100,000.

Penn, along with a guest panel that includes iconic boxer and entertainer Mike Tyson, actress/ comedian Mary Lynn Rajskub and neurosurgeon Dr. Rahul Jandial, will provide insights and comedic commentary about the competitors' unique abilities, while guiding the studio audience, who ultimately will decide which mental mastermind takes home the title of SUPERHUMAN and the $100,000 grand prize.

Originally produced by Endemol Shine Germany (series 6), the extraordinary competition format has been a breakout hit in China (series 3), Italy (series 2), Brazil (series 2), Spain and, most recently, France (series 3), where the premiere delivered top ratings for the network. Following the success in Germany and Spain, the networks launched a kids' version of the popular format. The U.S. marks the seventh territory where the format will launch, and further global interest is picking up.

SUPERHUMAN is produced by Endemol Shine North America. Rob Smith, George Hurford Jones and David Friedman serve as executive producers. Follow @FOXTV on Twitter and "like" FOX on Facebook at facebook.com/FOXTV for more updates, and join the discussion using #Superhuman.
