via press release:



 Unscripted Special Hosted by Howie Mandel

Mixes Flash Mob Concept with Hidden Camera Elements

To Provide Surprise Reveals to Unknowing Participants


Just in time for Thanksgiving, viewers can gobble up a new installment of the unscripted special MOBBED, which will air Wednesday, Nov. 23 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) following THE X FACTOR on FOX. Hosted by Howie Mandel, MOBBED puts a hidden-camera spin on the “flash mob” concept.

In each installment of this series, Mandel and thousands of strangers will help a special guest plan an extraordinary surprise for a friend, family member, loved one or co-worker. The unknowing participant will be shocked and stunned by a surprise performance that will lead up to a fantastic reveal.

Throughout the hour, the guests will be seen getting ready for the event – rehearsing their routines and refining their speeches – all while receiving guidance from host Mandel. Then, on the day of the big affair – with the hidden cameras rolling – the detailed plan comes to fruition and suddenly explodes into a song-and-dance spectacle that no one will ever forget.

MOBBED is produced by Alevy Productions and Angel City Factory. Howie Mandel, Chris Cowan, Jean-Michel Michenaud, Mike Marks, Darryl Trell, Howard Kitrosser, Kevin Healey, Michael Rotenberg and Toby Gorman serve as executive producers. It is based on a format created by Mandel, Trell and Kitrosser. Become a fan of the series on Facebook at and follow the series on Twitter at @mobbedonFOX.


[NOTE 1: THE X FACTOR will now air from 8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT.]
