Fox affiliate stations will air a TV special promoting its upcoming spring programming lineup.

The 30-minute spot, hosted by Fox stars and “Community” alumni Ken Jeong and Joel McHale will run on stations through March 5.

It will air on all Fox affiliates across the country, with approximately 400 airings during the window, but no primetime airings are scheduled nationwide.

Along with Jeong and McHale, the special features fellow Fox staples Rob Lowe (“9-1-1: Lone Star”), Jon Hamm (“Grimsburg”), Elodie Yung (“The Cleaning Lady”), and Gordon Ramsay (“MasterChef,” “Next Level Chef”), among others, all promoting the upcoming new seasons and episodes of their respective shows.

Other Fox series featured in the special include “Alert: Missing Persons Unit,” “Masterchef Junior,” “So You Think You Can Dance,” and “Farmer Wants a Wife” from Fox.

Almost all of Fox’s live-action scripted series have been pushed back to spring and fall 2024 due to production shutdowns caused by writers and actors strikes last summer, which prevented shows like “9-1-1: Lone Star” and “The Cleaning Lady” from making the fall 2023 schedule.

Fox, like other networks, is working overtime to let viewers know what it has to offer now that the strikes have ended and the holiday TV pause has passed, with a marketing push that rivals what the broadcaster would normally do to hype up its fall shows.

Speaking of fall, Fox will soon reveal its plans for September during its May upfront presentation to advertisers. Fox intends to hold its event on May 13 at Manhattan’s Hammerstein Ballroom.

Why is Ken Jeong no longer a doctor?

According to Jeong, the misery continued until his wife, Tran Ho, a licensed physician, intervened and encouraged him to pursue another career out of passion. In December 2006, he decided to leave his physician job and pursue a career in Hollywood.
