NBC has just given the green light to a new game show hailing from Will & Grace star Sean Hayes. According to Deadline, the series is titled Hollywood Game Nights, and is based on Hayes's real-life "game nights." Each episode, an hour long, will feature two contestants "transported from their everyday lives into a night of fun and celebration" with a group of celebrities ranging from actors to politicians to athletes. Somewhere in this "night of fun," the contestants will compete against each other for a cash prize, which one of them will walk away with at the end of the night.
"We are proud to be in business with Sean Hayes, who creatively brings so many good ideas such as this new game show romp that will be raucous and entertaining," NBC president of alternative programming, Paul Telegdy, said of the series. "Our audience will feel as if they are part of the party as we pull back the curtain on how todayâ€™s Hollywood stars play at home while our contestants can earn big money."
So basically it's watching other people win money at a party you'll never be invited to. Masochists everywhere, set your DVRs.
