NBC to launch Family Game Fight with Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard on March 12.
Each hour-long episode of the series will see married couple Bell and Shepard part ways and be “adopted” into a family of four as they compete in a series of games with a cash prize up for grabs.
The series — inspired by the couple’s antics on The Ellen DeGeneres Show — is produced by DeGeneres’ A Very Good Production and Warner Bros. Unscripted Television’s Warner Horizon division, in association with Telepictures.
Alongside DeGeneres, Bell and Shepard also serve as executive producers with Mary Connelly, Andy Lassner, Derek Westervelt, Noah Bonnett, Dan Norris, Joel Van Rysselberghe, Jeff Kleeman, Mike Darnell and Brooke Karzen.
Based at Warner Bros. Television Group (WBTVG) with an exclusive multiyear deal, A Very Good Production produces the nationally syndicated daytime talk show The Ellen DeGeneres Show and develops television projects for all divisions of WBTVG, including scripted, as well as NBC’s Ellen’s Game of Games and NBC talent show Little Big Shots.
