More from Deadline
It comes after Deadline revealed in May that the network had another spinoff in the works; it has previously launched spinoffs including America’s Got Talent: All-Stars, AGT: Extreme and America’s Got Talent: The Champions.
It follows Season 18 of America’s Got Talent, which premiered in May and runs through this month. It is hosted by Cowell, Klum, Mandel and Sofia Vergara and hosted by Crews.
Similar to a fantasy sports draft, the judges will each choose a roster of their favorite acts picking from winners, finalists, viral sensations and fan favorites from America’s Got Talent and Got Talent franchises around the world, all pre-selected by viewers in an initial vote.
For the first time in show history, the judges will be competing alongside the contestants and will mentor and guide the acts throughout the competition with the hopes of earning bragging rights and seeing an act from their team crowned the champion of AGT: Fantasy League.
Viewers will be able to suggest who competes on the AGT app after the AGT finale on September 27.
AGT: Fantasy League is co-produced by Fremantle and Syco Entertainment. Cowell, Sam Donnelly and Jason Raff are executive producers.
