As reported earlier, Whose Line is It Anyway? is being revived. Rumor was that it was being produced for a Warner Bros. website. We now know that the new episodes will air on The CW this summer.
Here’s the press release:
“WHOSE LINE IS IT ANYWAY?” RETURNS TO TELEVISION AS PART OF THE CW’S SUMMER 2013 SCHEDULE
Hosted by Aisha Tyler and Featuring the Return of Ryan Stiles, Wayne Brady and Colin Mochrie
March 1, 2013 (Burbank, California) – The CW is going for laughs this summer by ordering a new take on the hit improvisational comedy series, WHOSE LINE IS IT ANYWAY?, hosted by comedian Aisha Tyler (“The Talk”), it was announced today by Mark Pedowitz, President, The CW. Premiere information will be announced at a later time.
The CW’s WHOSE LINE IS IT ANYWAY? features the return of Ryan Stiles, Wayne Brady and Colin Mochrie, who along with a special guest each episode, must put their comedic skills to the test through a series of spontaneous improv games. Prompted only by random ideas supplied by the studio audience and host Aisha Tyler, our four performers must use the little information they have and their wild imaginations to depict different characters and an array of scenes, as well as perform songs. After each round of improvisation, Aisha will dole out points to our four performers and declare a winner at the end of every episode.
Based on the wildly successful U.K. format, which also spawned a previous incarnation in the US that ran for eight seasons on ABC, WHOSE LINE IS IT ANYWAY? is executive produced by Dan Patterson, Mark Leveson, Jimmy Mulville, Ryan Stiles and Wayne Brady. Co-created by Dan Patterson and Mark Leveson, WHOSE LINE IS IT ANYWAY? is from Angst Productions and Hat Trick Productions.
What do you think? Will you be watching this summer?
It’s actually a great and useful piece of info. I’m glad that you shared this useful info with us. Please stay us up to date like this. Thanks for sharing.
I’m happy to read that this show is being revived. The burning question, though, is this. Why is Drew Carey not coming back with it?
Perhaps because he’s hosting Price Is Right on CBS.
Perhaps the only reason I would even watch the CW. This show was hilarious.
