PRLog - Jun. 11, 2014 - LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Actor and dancer Robert Hoffman (Step Up 2: The Streets, 90210) will host truTV's new series Fake Off, which will feature ten teams from around the country competing against each other in the captivating art of Faking. The teams better bring their A-game to every performance, as they will face an impressive judging panel that includes music superstar and five-time Grammy winner Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas of the mega-group TLC; actor-dancer-choreographer Harry Shum Jr. (Glee, The LXD); and world renowned visual & concept designer Michael Curry (Broadway’s The Lion King, Cirque du Soleil’s Love).

Fake Off, which is slated to premiere on truTV this fall, will take viewers into the visually stunning world of Faking, a mix of theater, acrobatics, black light and illusion. In an elimination competition unlike anything American audiences have seen before, teams will reimagine iconic moments in pop culture to see who’s got the skills to be named America's Fake-Off Champions. Produced by Shine America.

Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas is the embodiment of a singer-actress-dancer best known as Chilli, one third of the iconic R&B group TLC. Originally a dancer, Chilli joined TLC in 1991. The group topped the charts throughout the '90s, producing four studio albums and establishing their place as pop icons, with continuous television appearances and feature film cameos. In 1996 Chilli was listed as one of People Magazine's 50 Most Beautiful People. In 1999, on TLC's album Fanmail, Chilli had her first lead single, "No Scrubs," which went #1 on Billboard's Hot 100 and won an MTV Music Award, two Grammys and various other awards. Following the tragic death of band mate "Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes, Chilli and Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins went on to star in the reality show R U the Girl, followed later by Chilli's own show, What Chilli Wants. Chilli flexed her entrepreneurial muscle in 2005, creating a line of handbags as an ode to her love and dedication to her son, Tron. She also became a proactive child advocate, forming her own non-profit, Chilli's Crew, with a mission of fostering a healthy sense of self in young women from the inside out.

Harry Shum Jr. is well known for his starring role on the hit series Glee. In addition, he has starred in the independent features Revenge of the Green Dragons and White Frog and recently released, Moms’ Night Out. His other film credits include Fast & Furious 3: Tokyo Drift, Stomp the Yard, You Got Served and Center Stage 2.

Michael Curry works widely as a visual and concept designer for numerous companies, such as Cirque du Soleil, The Metropolitan Opera, London's Royal National Theatre, Disney Theatrical Productions and the International Olympic Committee. He collaborates regularly with directors like Robert LePage, Nicholas Hytner, Julie Taymor and William Friedkin.

Robert Hoffman has been much sought-after for his skills as a dancer and choreographer. He shared an American Choreographer Award for the film You Got Served, in which he also co-starred. He also starred in Step Up 2: The Streets and has been seen dancing in such films as Guess Who?, Coach Carter, Pirates of the Caribbean and Vanilla Sky.
