NBC’s not playing games when it comes to their new game show Hollywood Game Night. They’re taking the show’s popularity seriously and have given the series an order for a 10-episode season two. The series is bases on Sean Hayes’ real life game nights and is hosted by Glee‘s Jane Lynch.
 
Paul Telegdy, President, Alternative and Late Night Programming, NBC Entertainment announced the renewal, stating, “Hollywood Game Night allows the audience to take a seat on the couch next to their favorite celebrities and enjoy the pandemonium and exuberance of the colorful cast of celebrities in each episode. Jane and her friends know how to throw a party and we’re thrilled viewers have come to play too.”
 
Season one found celebrities including Kristin Bell, Rose Byrne, Kristin Chenoweth, Lisa Kudrow, Matthew Perry, Amy Poehler, Martin Short, and Jason Sudeikis all showing up to play. “It’s fun hanging with friends and playing ringmaster, while trying to help our contestants earn $25,000,” said Lynch. “It’s a win-win for all.”
 
The Plot:
 
In the series, two contestants in each episode are transported from their everyday lives into a once-in-a-lifetime night of fun and celebration as they step beyond the velvet rope and rub shoulders with some of their favorite celebrities. Part Hollywood club and part casual game night, the series is a fresh look into the lives of the celebrity crowd.
