Pop To Unveil Nigel Lythgoe-Produced ‘Easiest Game Show Ever’

Cable-network Pop! will start production on “Easiest Game Show Ever,” a program the outlet says puts a new twist on the old true-or-false puzzle and  gives contestants the opportunity to win up to $100,000 cash per episode.

Michael Ian Black will host the 20-episode run. The show goes into production on October 19, and is expected to debut in early 2016.

The series is executive produced by Nigel Lythgoe and Gail Berman and Eric Levy with executive producer Barry Poznick.

In each episode, a pair of contestants works together to answer true or false to 20 different questions oriented around popular culture. After the team’s initial responses, Black and  co-host Abbi Crutchfield spend the rest of the show revealing additional  facts to the contestants, giving them the opportunity to doubt their initial responses and even change their answers. So, contestants have a 50/50 shot at answering each question correctly, but then get more information and are allowed to change their minds. To get the $100,000, they need to answer 15 out of 20 correctly to win a maximum prize of $100,000 cash.
