Meredith Vieira is ready for another game show. Deadline reports the former Who Wants to Be a Millionaire host has joined a new syndicated TV show, 25 Words or Less.
Based on the board game, the series “pits two teams comprised of celebrities and civilians against each other in a fast-paced word game with a top prize of $10,000.”
25 Words or Less is being produced by Lisa Kudrow, Dan Bucatinsky, Mary McCormack, Michael Morris, Bruce Sterten, and John Quinn. The new series will begin a three-week trial run on Fox TV stations on August 6th.
I’m so excited to host this game. It’s fun, fast and forces contestants to choose their words carefully. Add in celebrities, you’ve got a party!”
