Diggs said that the show was something he just had to contribute to. 

“The second I saw this show I knew I needed to be a part of it," he said. "It's the most unique blend of comedy and competition I've seen in years. I’m also quite excited as this is a program I can watch and laugh at with my 6-year-old son.” 

Production is slated to begin in July and no air date has been shared.
