AMC to play ‘Charades’ with celebs

AMC has greenlit “Celebrity Charades,” a six-episode gameshow from exec producers Bob Balaban, Chad Lowe and Hilary Swank. Production is under way in New York. AMC will air the half-hour series beginning June 20. In each episode of “Charades,” 10 celebs will be divided into two teams, with each player trying to raise money for his or her chosen charity. Ten clues will be thematically linked to a movie-related topic, and the first team to correctly guess all 10 charades and their overall theme — while they wine and dine — wins the game. In addition, viewers will be treated to trivia and factoids during the game on the lower third of the screen. Players on board include Carson Kressley, Bebe Neuwirth, Joel Siegel, Peter Boyle, Dr. Joyce Brothers, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Anthony Mackie, Rosie Perez, Isaac Mizrahi, Peter Bogdanovich, Hank Azaria and Ana Gasteyer. Lowe and Balaban will serve as rotating hosts and participate in various challenges.
