Digital multicast network Buzzr is giving failed gameshow pilots a second chance with six-day “Lost & Found” programming block beginning Sept. 7.
The block will debut unsuccessful pilots, with the schedule to include “Body Talk,” “On a Roll,” “TKO,” “Star Words” and the 1992 format of “Family Feud.”
Buzzr will also incorporate successful pilots and episodes of popular shows like “Match Game,” “Body Language,” “Beat the Clock,” “Child’s Play” and “Let’s Make a Deal.” On Sept. 12, at the conclusion of the programming block, a recap will air about some of the popular pilots.
Buzzr is owned by FremantleMedia North America and serves to highlights vintage gameshows from the past six decades.
Buzzr exec VP-general manager Ron Garfield said, “We’re continuously collaborating to find new ways to curate our enormous library of game show content. There are countless shows that we personally know and love, and many that our viewers request.” He added, “It was exciting digging into the vaults like archaeologists, discovering what some of these shows looked like at the very beginning. We’re eager to share these with our fans.”
