The show is a five-week reality TV series, and will premiere on Friday, October 22 at 8 p.m. ET/PT via CBS, as well as on Paramount+.

Here’s a description: “Six inspiring activists teamed with three high-profile public figures work together to bring meaningful change to one of three vitally important world causes: health, education, and environment. Activists go head-to-head in challenges to promote their causes, with their success measured via online engagement, social metrics, and hosts’ input. The three teams have one ultimate goal: to create impactful movements that amplify their message, drive action, and advance them to the G20 Summit in Rome, Italy. There, they will meet with world leaders in the hope of securing funding and awareness for their causes. The team that receives the largest commitment is celebrated as the overall winner at the finale, which will also feature musical performances by some of the world’s most passionate artists.”

“Combining philanthropy and entertainment, The Activist is a ground-breaking series poised to inspire viewers. We’re thrilled to have Usher, Priyanka, and Julianne as part of the series, guiding our CBS audience through the journeys of passionate changemakers from around the world,” said CBS’s Jack Sussman.

Priyanka recently shared an intimate glimpse at her personal life with husband Nick Jonas.

One star recently revealed he was depressed for years because of Usher‘s criticism of his music.
