Fox Television Stations to Preview TMZ Style Game Show

By Kevin Eck 

Fox Television Stations is previewing a game show called South of Wilshire. The show will get an 8-week run from the station group, starting Jan. 4, 2016.

South of Wilshire is set in L.A.’s Crenshaw District soul food restaurant Dulan’s. Contestants try to guess who a celebrity is based on videos shot where they hang out, while getting clues from shop owners and customers. In the final round, the disguised celebrities gives clues about themselves while the show’s audience eats food from Dulan’s.

“Interesting and different, within a sustainable economic model,” said Frank Cicha, svp of programming for Fox Television Stations. “That’s what we’re after, and that’s what we think South Of Wilshire delivers. Extending the original series strategy beyond summer is also a plus. And, it will give us something to talk about at NATPE.”


“The show is super fun,” said ep Harvey Levin. “It has a really different vibe from other game shows and it works on a couple of levels. It’s impossible not to play along, and just watching the people at Dulan’s and the videos are entertaining as hell.”

The show is produced by TMZ Studios and Telepictures.
