Let the summer game shows begin!!  In order to kick-off summer with a splash, on Sunday June 12th, BUZZR will air a marathon of vintage To Tell The Truth episodes featuring Betty White.  The To Tell the Truth marathon will begin at noon and will include the pilot episode which was entitled Nothing But the Truth and was hosted by Mike Wallace.  This lost pilot episode, which will air at 8:00 PM ET/5:00 PM PT was created in 1956 but has never before aired on television.   Additional vintage episodes will also be included and will feature a collection of memorable guests, inventive lines of questioning, and sneaky impostors.


To Tell the Truth features a panel of four celebrities whose object is to correctly identify a described contestant who has an unusual occupation or experience. This central character is accompanied by two impostors who pretend to be him/her.   The celebrity panelists question the three contestants.  While the impostors are allowed to lie, the central character is sworn "to tell the truth".  After questioning, the celebrity panel attempts to identify which of the three challengers is telling the truth and is thus the actual person they claim to be.


BUZZRs To Tell the Truth marathon will offer a great re-introduction to this game show format leading up to ABCs premiere of the newly re-imagined series.  The new To Tell the Truth will be hosted by Anthony Anderson and will premiere on ABC Tuesday, June 14th with a special sneak peek at 8:00 PM ET/PT, followed by the series premiere at 10:00 PM ET/PT.
