The Game Show Network has greenlit “The Line,” a traveling game show, the network announced Tuesday. With its first stop July 19 in Nashville, Tenn.,, the show focuses on its contestants’ ability to win both at the end of the titular line and while waiting for their chance to get to the front.
“The goal of ‘The Line’ is to take the joy of game directly to communities across the country and we are so excited that GSN’s first stop is Nashville,” said Amy Introcaso-Davis, GSN’s executive vice president of programming and development, in a statement. “We have taken something most people dislike – waiting in line – and turned it into the most fun you have ever had, with cash, prizes and 500 new friends!”
Produced by High Noon Entertainment, “The Line” will be hosted by Jeff Davis of “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” fame and Candace Bailey, former co-host of “Attack of the Show.”
Participants of the game will attempt to claim a growing jackpot by reaching the “Trivia Vault” at the front of the line and correctly answering eight true/false questions. Those waiting in line will also have their chance to win cash and prizes by playing “outrageous games.”
“We love creating game formats and this one is terrific because it combines both the intellectual and the physical, as well as dual gameplay that takes place both inside the dome and outside in line,” said executive producer Jim Berger.
Bailey is repped by APA, Silver Lining Entertainment and Morris Yorn Barnes Levine Krintzman Rubenstein Kohner & Gellman. Davis is repped by Domain Talent and Interlink Management.
“The Line” has not yet been given a premiere date.
