Fox is giving new reality skein “Banzai” a “Simpsons”-size push.
Net has slotted the previously announced half-hour spoof of Japanese gameshows Sundays at 8:30 p.m. following repeats of “The Simpsons.” Skein bows July 13.
“Banzai” is a “comedic interactive betting show,” according to Fox. Each episodes serves up a series of spoofs and competitions and allows viewers to bet on the outcome. Skein, from Radar Prods., first aired on the U.K.’s Channel 4.
If “Banzai” performs well this summer, Fox has indicated the show could land a spot on the net’s fall or midseason sked.
