Justin Long has signed on to host and produce a new show for Disney+. Shop Class will be a competition show and will premiere on the streaming platform on February 28, according to a report from Hollywood Reporter.
We first learned about Shop Class before Disney+ launched, when a long list of upcoming original content was announced. The new series will join the Disney+ collection of unscripted shows that includes Encore!, The Imagineering Story, Marvel’s Hero Project, The World According to Jeff Goldblum, and more.
In this competition series, students are given a challenge to design, build, and test new inventions with one team becoming the champions. A panel of experts will judge the projects based on the team’s creativity and how functional the end results are.
The series will be produced by Hangar 56. Long, John Stevens, and Spike Feresten will executive produce, along with Richard Rawlings, Ruth Amsel, and Charles Steenveld.
