Hayes came up with the idea for the show based on his real-life “game nights.” The series will feature celebrities “enjoying themselves in a cocktail party environment.”
Announcing Lynch’s involvement Paul Telegdy, President, Alternative and Late Night Programming, NBC stated: “With Jane Lynch on board as our host, we now have a key component in place that will further enliven the sheer fun of a raucous Hollywood party that will include real everyday people. Her exuberant wit and ability to think quickly will be the perfect match for our show which will give viewers a fresh look inside the off-set lives of their favorite celebrities — and allow them a chance to win money as well.”
“I’m so thrilled to let the world in on the fun with Sean at ‘Game Night’!” said Lynch. “The format is sure to provide a lot of unexpected results that will keep everyone off-balance and entertained.”
Hollywood Game Night brings both players and viewers into the exclusive world of Hollywood royalty as celebrities gather for a fun, pop-culture based game night. The mood is lively, playful, and spontaneous — with flowing drinks, passed hors d’oeuvres and a live house band.
At the end, one of the two contestants will walk away with a cash prize and a night of stories and memories for friends and family back home. Featuring well-known names from the world of television, film, sports and politics, among other entities, this isn’t a typical game show — it’s a peek behind the curtain of the Hollywood scene and a chance to hang out for a night with a group of your favorite celebrities.
