Stars from TV, film, sports and pop culture plunge into a whole new pool when the two-hour special event "Stars in Danger: The High Dive" premieres Wednesday, Jan. 9 (8 p.m.), on FOX.

Based on a long-running German format, "Stars in Danger: The High Dive" is the ultimate test for eight celebrities who will step to the edge and take a flying leap or momentous belly flop into diving history. But, first, they must complete a crash-course in diving techniques, overseen by renowned diving coaches. After an intense training period, they will compete in a series of Olympic-style dives, including solo high diving and synchronized diving, from a variety of heights. With the help of Olympic diving medalist and commentator Troy Dumais, viewers will also get a poolside look at the courage and perseverance - as well as the twists, turns and flips - that go into turning a celebrity into an expert - or not so expert - diver.
