GAME ON! (CBS)
DEVELOPMENT HISTORY:
10/31/19 - 11/6/19
STATUS:
currently in development (2020-2021 season)
DEVELOPMENT STAGE:
ordered to series
DESCRIPTION:
(from CBS's press release, November 2019) CBS has ordered GAME ON!, a sports comedy entertainment series based on "A League of Their Own," the BAFTA-winning U.K. series currently in its 14th season on Sky. The U.S. version will be hosted by Emmy and Peabody Award-winning actor, writer and producer Keegan-Michael Key, and will feature tennis champion and entrepreneur Venus Williams and New England Patriots Super Bowl champion Rob Gronkowski as team captains. Actor and comedian Bobby Lee ("Mad TV," "Tiger Belly") and Emmy Award-winning writer Ian Karmel (THE LATE LATE SHOW with JAMES CORDEN) will serve as comedian panelists. Equal parts comedy and game show, the genre-busting GAME ON! pits two teams of three, captained by Williams and Gronkowski, with comedians Lee and Karmel and a rotating mix of sports stars, comedians and celebrities, against one another. The teams will go head to head in over-the-top physical challenges, from seeing who can dunk the most basketballs over a tank of water while harnessed on a bungee cord, to taking on a sumo wrestler in the ring. They will also have their sports-related knowledge tested with trivia questions, such as "Which football player cried the longest after winning a championship?" and "Which of these athletes was the largest baby when they were born?"
