ABC has tapped Joey Lawrence and Charissa Thompson (co-host of ESPN2’s SportsNation) to host Splash, the network’s new diving competition series debuting on March 19, 2013 at 8pm. The new series is based on the Dutch television series Celebrity Splash and is executive produced by JD Roth, Todd A. Nelson, Brant Pinvidic and Josh Greenberg.
 
10 celebrity contestants will “face their fears” as they dive into the pool while showing off their flipping, spinning, and twisting skills.
 
The Details:
 
Splash marks the first time ten celebrities will train and compete in regulation platform and springboard diving at dizzying heights in front of a weekly poolside audience. After training with professional divers and being mentored by the world’s most decorated and medaled diving legend, Greg Louganis, their dives will be critiqued by two judges, London Olympic U.S. Gold medalist David Boudia and Australian Olympic athlete and USA Dive Team director Steve Foley.
