LOS ANGELES, Feb. 4 (UPI) -- Louie Anderson, Drake Bell, Nicole Eggert and Keshia Knight Pulliam are to compete on "Splash," a U.S. celebrity diving series to debut next month, ABC said.
The show is to premiere March 19.
"'Splash' marks the first time 10 celebrities will train and compete in regulation platform and springboard diving at dizzying heights in front of a weekly poolside audience," ABC said in a news release Monday. "Each week the celebrities will look fear in the face as they leap off the 10-meter high dive, pair off to complete synchronized stunts, and flip, twist and spin into the depths of the pool below. Leading up to the competition, the world's most decorated and medaled diving legend, Greg Louganis, will give each celebrity weeks of training. Each dive will be critiqued by the judges, London Olympics U.S. gold medalist David Boudia and Australian Olympic athlete and USA dive team director Steve Foley."
