Santa Monica, CA – October 28, 2013 — GSN, which has launched an impressive slate of highly rated new original programming in recent years, announced today the premiere date of its original half-hour game show –MIND OF A MAN, 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 January 8, 2014 at 8 PM ET/PT.
In addition, GSN’s successful new original series THE CHASE returns for a second season on Tuesday, November 5, 2013 at 8 PM ET/PT.
In each episode of MIND OF A MAN, two female contestants 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 will walk away with the grand prize.
Serving as host of MIND OF A MAN, Comedian-actor DeRay Davis has most recently been “scene” and heard in “G.I. Joe: Retaliation,” “21 Jump Street,” “Jumping The Broom,” and his wildly successful Showtime one-hour Comedy Special, “DeRay Davis: Power Play.” He appeared on “Second Generation Wayans,” and lends his voice and writing talent to countless characters on Kanye West’s albums, “The Boondocks,” and currently on Adult Swims “Black Dynamite.”
MIND OF A MAN is produced by Never Nominated Productions Inc.with 51 Minds Entertainment’s Mark Cronin serving as Executive Producer.
In THE CHASE, a team of three contestants attempts to amass as much money as possible by answering quick-fire questions in a 60-second round. The money earned will go towards a team bank. Why the urgency? Because The Beast is always lurking, ready to pounce. The Beast—quite simply—is a quiz genius. The job of this intimidating presence is to catch each contestant by answering more questions than his opponents to ensure they are not able to bank their money. It’s a role he executes with ruthless efficiency. In the final round, the teammates who have survived the initial chase collectively play against The Beast in an epic David vs. Goliath battle for the entire amount that they have banked.
Based on the hit U.K. show of the same name, GSN’s THE CHASE is hosted by actress and television host Brooke Burns, known for her starring roles on “Baywatch” and “Melrose Place” and for her hosting duties on the game show “Dog Eat Dog” (now airing on GSN) and on the GSN pilot “Where Have You Been All My Life?” She was last seen in the starring role of the Lifetime movie “A Sister’s Revenge.”
Joining Burns on the show as the formidable Beast is Mark Labbett, one of the original “Chasers” in the UK version and—at 6’7” and 370 pounds, with degrees from Oxford, Exeter and Glamorgan universities—a quiz giant in every way.
THE CHASE is produced by ITV Studios America with Bob Boden, Martin Scott and Michael Kelpie serving as Executive Producers.
