Ben Bailey (Cash Cab) will host a pilot for Games Across America, a reality series taking viewers across the country looking at unusual games and competitions. 


 


The Impostor (from the original upfronts) will be piloted by Finesse Mitchell (SNL alumni). The series focuses on a pair of contestants who are placed in a mansion with a family, but need to find out which one is The Impostor.


 


It Takes a Church (from the original upfronts) will be piloted with executive producers Ton Rogan and Lauren Lexton


 


Other series in development:


 


As Seen on TV focusing on new inventions, inventors proposing new ideas hoping they could sell.


 


Swarm: A fast-paced stunt/quizzer game show (Typo fixed)


 


Skin Wars features incredible artists doing unbelievable visual challenges.


 


Penny Pinchers is a reality series featuring who can push themselves the furthest on a tight budget.


 


Say What? is a modern game show version of \"Telephone\"

Out of these, Games Across America looks the most interesting to me. I could definitely see it being what History does with some of their shows: being educational and entertaining in a reality format.

He apparently fixed \"a\" typo, just not all of them.

This has been another installment of Matt Ottinger's Masters of the Obvious.
Stay tuned for all the obsessive-compulsive fun of Words Have Meanings.

Yeah, he needs to fix the one that says \"Blog\". My auto-correct wants to change it to \"Blah\".

Most of these have \"facepalm\" written all over them.

And the autocorrect is wrong? It is a blah-g, as in \"How do you enjoy that site? It was blah.\"

IIRC, GSN did interstitials throughout the night on Saturdays from 2003-04 with this exact same title and format.  Interesting to see it make a comeback as (presumably) a full-length program.

I will try to give my own typo-free two cents since the majority is not here:[/quote]Majority of what?
  

studio-based game shows

What difference does it make whether a game is \"studio-based\" or \"non studio-based\"?
 

Isn\'t As Seen on TV basically Shark Tank?
[/quote]Yes, as The Impostor is to ABC\'s Whodunnit.[/quote]This either shows a total lack of awareness or you no longer care about being factually correct.

Or maybe \"Nicole\" wrote this for you, Scott.

Almost Anything Goes and the 60s edition of Supermarket Sweep weren\'t stuido-based, and they were both hits in their time. Being based in a studio does not always have bearing on a show\'s format.
