Truth pilot taps hosts

Bill Engvall, Mo Rocca set for ABC's 'Trust Me'

Bill Engvall (“Blue Collar TV”) and Mo Rocca (NPR’s “Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me”) have been tapped as hosts of ABC’s “Trust Me, I’m a Game Show Host.”

The reality pilot, which is set to shoot next week in Los Angeles, will feature Engvall 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.

Engvall — famous for his “Here’s Your Sign” routine — recently starred in TBS’ “The Bill Engvall Show.” Rocca is also known for “The Daily Show,” and hosted TruTV’s “The Smoking Gun TV.”

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.

Engvall and Rocca were chosen because both comedians come from such different worlds: Engvall brings a Southern sensibility to the show, while Rocca adds an intellectual, highbrow air.
