Coming soon on Fox: When Celebrities Attack. The network that brought you ”Celebrity Boxing” is about to unleash an all-star version of ”Boot Camp,” last year’s reality hit, in which viewers will get to watch Marine drill instructors at Camp Pendleton make pampered stars drop and give them 20.

As with ”Boxing,” Fox’s definition of ”celebrity” here is elastic. According to Variety, those recruited include musicians Coolio, Tiffany, Vitamin C, and Milli Vanilli’s Fabrice Morvan; TV personalities David Faustino (Fox’s ”Married… With Children”), Barry ”Greg Brady” Williams (a ”Celebrity Boxing” veteran), ”Baywatch”’s Traci Bingham, Lorenzo Lamas, and ”The Price Is Right” spokesmodel Nikki Schieler Ziering; and professional houseguest Kato Kaelin.

”Boot Camp,” a modest hit for Fox in spring 2001, was the subject of a lawsuit from CBS, who considered its regimen of physical challenges and one-by-one elimination a ripoff of ”Survivor.” (The suit was settled out of court.) It ran for nine episodes, but the celeb version will cram all the training and ”Gauntlet” runs into one two-hour special, airing Sept. 30.
