The reality pilot, which is set to shoot next week in Los Angeles, will feature Ingvall and Rocca as they make opposing arguments — like lawyers in a court room — to an audience of contestants. One host will be telling the truth — and the other will be lying.
It’s up to the contestants to try and figure out who to believe, as both hosts will make a pretty convincing argument. The contestants who side with the right answer will move on to the next round — until one player remains. Winner will receive a cash prize.
Ingvall and Rocca were chosen because both comedians come from such different worlds: Ingvall brings a Southern sensibility to the show, while Rocca adds an intellectual, high-brow air.
Mark Burnett Prods. and Monkey Kingdom are behind “Trust Me, I’m a Game Show Host.” This is the second time down the “Blue Collar” well for Burnett, whose “Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader” is hosted by Jeff Foxworthy.
