GSN GETS INSIDE THE “MIND OF A MAN,”
AS NETWORK ORDERS 40 EPISODES OF NEW ORIGINAL SERIES
In New Game Show, Female Contestants Get Help From
Celebrity Panelists as They Try to Figure Out What Men Really Think
August 14, 2013 (Santa Monica, CA) — GSN announced today that the network has ordered 40 episodes of the new original series MIND OF A MAN, a half-hour game show in which two female contestants try to figure out what men really think, with the help of a celebrity panel. MIND OF A MAN will premiere on GSN in late 2013.
“GSN is bringing our viewers a series that answers the question I’ve often asked myself: ‘What on earth are men thinking?!’ ” said Amy Introcaso-Davis, EVP, Programming and Development, GSN. “MIND OF A MAN offers plenty of outrageous humor along with truly enlightening insights—a winning combination for both women and men.”
“Just as men have never quite figured out ‘what women want,’ we know that women are often completely mystified by men—‘Why didn’t he call?’ ‘What is he feeling?’ ‘Does he love ESPN more than me?’ ” said Mark Cronin, Executive Producer. “At last, with MIND OF A MAN, women can get the answers they’ve been looking for—and win some serious money in the process.”
What are men really thinking? In each episode of MIND OF A MAN, two female contestants will try to figure out what men really think about dating, marriage, working and all manner of manly pursuits. The questions on the show have all been previously asked and answered by a survey of 100 men. Over three rounds, the contestants will try to determine the correct answers with the help of a celebrity panel. A mix of famous and funny male and female celebrities will offer their opinions about what men are really thinking. And for successfully getting inside the MIND OF A MAN, one of the contestants could walk away with the grand prize.
MIND OF A MAN is produced by Never Nominated Productions Inc. with 51 Minds Entertainment’s Mark Cronin serving as Executive Producer.
