If you’re a fan of resurrected game shows and a star-gazer, NBC has the game show just for you! As part of NBC’s All-American Summer, Celebrity Family Feud will be hitting the air waves, with celebs and their families smacking the buzzers and Al Roker calling out, “Survey says!”
Produced by FremantleMedia North America (of American Idol and America’s Got Talent fame), the show promises to be “…a no-holds-barred, laugh-out-loud series that allows celebrities to be themselves among their family members or among longtime co-stars who have become like family,” said Craig Plestis, Executive VP Alternative Programming for NBC. “Viewers can’t help but play along, and with Al Roker at the helm, it promises to provide high energy, interactive fun,with the bonus of exposing the unscripted side of our favorite celebrities.”
The show will pit four celebrity families against one another, competing to raise money for their favorite charities. Though no word on what celeb clans will be featured on the show, there is word that some will be celebs and their real-life families, while others will feature well-loved nostalgic and current television families (why do I hear the Partridge Family theme song in my head right now?).
The new Feud producers are hoping Celebrity Family Feud will bring them the same primetime success that CBS’s The Price is Right has brought to CBS. “We’re thrilled to once again bring a hugely successful game show format to primetime,” says Cecile Frot-Coutaz, CEO of FremantleMedia North America. “It is one of the handful of game show formats that has stood the test of time and traveled the world successfully. Like ‘The Price Is Right,’ we’re confident this primetime version will resonate with viewers of all ages.”
Celebrity Family Feud premieres Tuesday, July 1st at 8:00 PM (ET) on NBC.
