Fake Off was a reality television competition show that aired on truTV in 2014. The show was hosted by actor and dancer Harry Shum Jr., with judges Robert Hoffman and Corbin Bleu. The premise of the show was to showcase teams of performers who specialize in a unique style of entertainment called imitation art. Imitation art is a style where performers recreate famous works of art, including paintings, sculptures, and photographs, but with their own twist. It is a unique combination of dance, theater, and visual arts.

Each episode of the show, four teams performed live on stage in front of a studio audience, trying to impress the judges with their imitation art performance. The teams had just five days to conceptualize and rehearse their act before presenting it to the judges.

In each round, the judges would critique the performances, and one team would be eliminated from the competition. The remaining teams advanced to the next round, where they would have to create an even more complex and intricate imitation art performance to impress the judges.

The show featured a wide range of imitation art styles and performances, including recreations of famous paintings like "The Scream," "American Gothic," and "The Birth of Venus," as well as unique takes on iconic photographs and sculptures.

The teams were made up of talented performers from all over the world, including dancers, actors, acrobats, and puppeteers, all working together to create a truly unforgettable imitation art performance.

One of the most exciting aspects of the show was watching the teams come up with creative and innovative ways to bring their imitation art performances to life. Using everything from projections and special effects to puppets and costumes, the teams would transform the stage into a living, breathing work of art.

The judges on the show were also a highlight, providing insightful critiques of the teams' performances while injecting humor and personality into the show. Harry Shum Jr. was a particularly engaging and charming host, bringing his experience as a dancer and actor to the table.

Overall, Fake Off was a truly unique and entertaining show that showcased the incredible creativity and talent of the performers involved. While it only lasted for two seasons, it left a lasting impression on viewers and stands as a testament to the power of imitation art as a form of entertainment.

Fake Off is a series that is currently running and has 2 seasons (17 episodes). The series first aired on October 27, 2014.
