GSN announced the premiere date for the original series THE AMERICAN BIBLE CHALLENGE, an original one-hour game show hosted by comedian Jeff Foxworthy, on Thursday, August 23 at 8 pm ET/PT.
Comedian and author, Jeff Foxworthy hosts this studio-based game in which contestants compete based on their knowledge of the Bible. Utilizing current as well as historical references, questions will be drawn from the rich, dense narrative found in the world’s best-selling book. The contestants will share their compelling back-stories and each team will be playing for a charitable organization.
This new show represents GSN’s broader programming strategy of game-based series that reflect the core attributes of the brand. THE AMERICAN BIBLE CHALLENGE on Thursday nights is the first of GSN’s “Shiny Floor Game” category – contemporary studio based game shows that focus on themes prevalent in pop culture.
THE AMERICAN BIBLE CHALLENGE is produced by RelativityREAL for GSN, with RelativityREAL’s Tom Forman (“Extreme Makeover: Home Edition”) and Embassy Row’s Michael Davies (“The Newlywed Game,” “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire”) serving as Executive Producers on the project. Nick Stuart and Maura Dunbar of Odyssey Networks are Consulting Producers.
