via press release:
A PANEL OF CELEBRITIES WORK TOGETHER
“TO TELL THE TRUTH”
ON ABC’S NEW COMEDIC VARIETY SHOW
Anthony Anderson (Actor, Comedian, Star
and Executive Producer of “black-ish”) Hosts
Betty White and NeNe Leakes to Serve as Panelists
Additional Celebrity Guests will Join Throughout the Season
Hosted by Anthony Anderson and produced by FremantleMedia North America, “To Tell The Truth” is an anarchic and funny re-imagination of the beloved, game show of the same name. The all new version will take the excitement to another level featuring fun characters from pop culture over the six-episode series. “To Tell The Truth” is coming soon to the ABC Television Network.
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.
The celebrity panelists set to appear in each episode include:
- Betty White – Seven-Time Emmy® Award Winning TV legend, actress, author and producer, and passionate supporter of animal health and welfare. Betty is known for her iconic television roles from “The Golden Girls” and “The Mary Tyler Moore Show.”
- NeNe Leakes – Actress, TV personality, producer, author and fashion designer most recently seen on Broadway in Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella.
