Celebrities to dive in over their heads in Fox special

You've heard of Circus of the Stars. Now get ready for Pool of High Diving Stars.

Fox has ordered a two-hour special, "Stars in Danger: High Diving" which will feature celebrities plunging into the sport of high diving.

The project is based on an original German celebrity high diving format, and will air in winter 2013. The special will be produced by Bunim/Murray Productions, the producers of "The Real World."

Eight celebrities from music, TV, film and pop culture arenas will complete a crash course in diving techniques, trained and coached by some of the country's most accomplished divers before competing in a series of Olympic-style dives, such as solo high diving and synchronized diving, from heights of 3, 5, 7½ and 10 meters.
