Get ready for some Pictionary to fill your daytime viewing time. A new iteration of the game show will air on some local Fox stations next month with the possibility of a bigger run if the series does well. Jerry O’Connell will handle hosting duties. This is not the first time the actor has hosted during daytime hours as he had a talk show, Jerry O, in 2019.
Per Deadline, O’Connell said the following about hosting the new series:
“Ever since my failed drawing of a koala bear, lost my mom and me our household Pictionary crown, I’ve wanted to prove myself on the Pictionary stage. I’m so happy to be working with this team from Fox and CBS. Sharpen your pencils, it’s going to be a fun summer.”
Frank Cicha, EVP Programming at Fox Television Stations, also spoke about bringing the game show to FOX daytime:
“We’re sure a lot of families got much better at Pictionary over the last 15 months, so we think the timing is perfect for a fun, innovative TV version, and to have Jerry O’Connell as host is a real bonus. We’ve loved working with him in the past, and are fortunate he chose to do this with us.”
What do you think? Are you planning to check out Pictionary on local Fox stations next month?
