About the Show
EMPIRE star Terrence Howard hosts the all-new special TERRENCE HOWARD’S FRIGHT CLUB, premiering Thursday, May 24(8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. The thrilling, one-hour event follows Howard’s biggest fans on a once-in-a-lifetime experience, in which nothing is quite as it seems.
When Howard’s super-fans are invited to New Orleans to meet the star at his remote estate, they believe they’ve won an online competition to take part in a filmed VIP experience. What they don’t know is that they are about to be pranked by Howard, and that everyone they meet is an actor who’s in on the joke.
Hidden cameras follow the super-fans and capture their reactions to a series of wild experiences that Howard, in full prankster mode, has set up for them. From swamp monsters to voodoo spells, their reactions are captured on film from his secret control room. Thrills ensue as the super-fans are pushed to their limits before Howard lets them in on his tricks. It will be a weekend they won’t forget!
TERRENCE HOWARD’S FRIGHT CLUB is produced by Propagate Content and Universal Bridges. It was created by Terrence Howard and Mira Howard. Ben Silverman, Howard Owens, Terrence Howard, Mira Howard and Kevin Healey serve as executive producers on the show.
