New Series Includes Special Celebrity Guests Tom Bergeron, Adam West and
Tom Green Among Others
SANTA MONICA, Calif., March 28 -- Expect 30 minutes of the
unexpected when the most revealing game show on television, GSN's I'VE GOT A
SECRET premieres weeknights beginning Monday, April 17 at 11:30PM EST.
Paying homage to one of the longest running and popular game shows, the
series takes viewers back in time to the classic panel show, with the updated
version showcasing the swankiest fashions, a retro set, and four comical
panelists who will say almost anything to discover the secrets of our guests.
It's funny and smart, but beware -- no one's secrets are safe!
I'VE GOT A SECRET is hosted by Bil Dwyer (EXTREME DODGEBALL, THAT 70'S
HOUSE), who is charged with keeping his panelists in line. The cast of
characters on the panel include Frank DeCaro (Sirius Radio's "The Frank DeCaro
Show," "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart"), Billy Bean (former outfielder for
the Los Angeles Dodgers and Detroit Tigers), Suzanne Westenhoefer ("Late Show
with David Letterman," "Politically Incorrect") and Jermaine Taylor (Broadway
actor and dancer).
During each half-hour show, the guest whispers their secret to Dwyer while
it is also shown to the live studio-audience and home viewer. Each panelist
puts the guest through the ringer for 40 seconds, asking yes or no questions
to figure out their secret. If they are unsuccessful, the next panelist gets
their shot at cross-examining. Should the guest stump the panel, they walk
away with cash and prizes.
The original version of I'VE GOT A SECRET premiered in 1952 and ran for
15 years. Hosted by Garry Moore who was later replaced by Steve Allen, the
series moved into the top ten in the second year, remaining there for the next
four seasons, with its highest rating during 1957-58 when it ranked fifth.
I'VE GOT A SECRET is executive produced by Burt Dubrow ("The New Tom Green
Show," "Jerry Springer") and Jean Wiegman ("Trivia Unwrapped," "The New Tom
Green Show") for Burt Dubrow Productions.
