NBC Is Developing a New Game Show Where People Play Games with Celebrities
Former "Will & Grace" star SEAN HAYES is apparently legendary for hosting some awesome celebrity game nights. Now, he's producing a GAME SHOW based on them, and NBC just picked it up. The show is called "Hollywood Game Night", and it sounds a little like "Win, Lose or Draw".
On each episode, two contestants will be invited to "a casual game night with celebrities," and one of them, the one from the winning team, will take home a cash-prize. We love the phrase "a casual game night with celebrities", as if this is something that any REAL everyday person would find the least bit casual. It's like, what are you doing tonight? Oh, just playing Monopoly with Rob Lowe, Sarah McLachlan, Chris Rock, Troy Aikman, Wilford Brimley, Lisa Ling, and some plumber I don't know from Nebraska. You know, just a game night.
There's no word what celebrities might be onboard, but NBC promises they'll be, "Well-known names from the world of television, film, sports and politics, among other entities." We're assuming the celebrities will change from one episode to the next, like "Win, Lose or Draw". There's no word when "Hollywood Game Night" might premiere.
