ABC’s bringing back the classic game show To Tell the Truth and has signed up Betty White and NeNe Leakes as panelists for the six episode season one. black-ish‘s Anthony Anderson will handle hosting duties and is executive producing along with Barry Poznick, Toby Gorman, Thom Beers, Jeff Gaspin, George Moll.

ABC did not announce when we can expect the show to premiere, but did say that White and Leakes will be joined by two additional celebrity panelists on each episode.

The Details, Courtesy of ABC:
Anderson will preside over four famous faces including legend Betty White (who has appeared on previous versions of the show) and actress NeNe Leakes. In each round they will be presented with three people who all claim to be the same person with the same incredible talent, job or achievement.  One is sworn to tell the truth while the others are not. The panel of celebrities will have a chance to grill each participant before taking turns deciding who they think is telling the truth.

Anderson’s brassy mother, Doris, will be the official scorekeeper and asking questions of her own, not to mention embarrassing her son every chance she gets. The celebrity panelist who performs the worst will have to tweet a lie about themselves to the world. Cheche and his Band of Liars will be the house band. Every episode will end with a show stopping stunt/performance.
