Rapper Pitbull (Armando Christian Perez) will be counting down to 2015 with Fox, signing a deal for Pitbull’s New Year’s Revolution special. Hosted by Pitbull and produced by Endemol, the special will air on Wednesday, December 31 from 8:00-10:00 PM ET live (CT/MT/PT tape-delayed) and is envisioned as potentially launching a New Year’s Eve franchise for Fox with Pitbull in the vein of ABC’s Rockin’ Eve With Ryan Seacrest and NBC’s New Year’s Eve with Carson Daly. The show will feature performances by Pitbull and various musicians, DJs, and celebs and will take place in his hometown of Miami, FL. Endemol is launching a new division, Endemol LIVE, with Pitbull’s New Year’s Revolution, alongside the “Calle Ocho” performer’s own Honey I’m Home banner. Cris Abrego and Charlie Corwin, co-chairmen and co-CEOs of Endemol America, signed an exclusive deal with Pitbull in January to produce TV and digital content. Here’s a preview of the special, Pitbull-style, in the rapper’s own words: “The world needs to get ready to un-mute New Year’s Eve, because we are taking the party from the Big Apple to the Pineapple. New Year’s Eve is officially in Miami and hosted by yours truly, Mr. Worldwide. P.S. Whatever happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, but whatever happens in Miami never happened, Daleee!”
