GSN and Scott Sternberg Productions Bring the European Hit 'THAT'S THE QUESTION' to American Audiences This Fall

'Entertainment Tonight' Vet Bob Goen Hosts New U.S. Version That Tests Contestants Word Skills and Trivia Knowledge

PASADENA, Calif., July 11 -- GSN, the network for games, and Scott Sternberg Productions are bringing the highly-rated international show, THAT'S THE QUESTION, to American audiences in the fall with 20 episodes of the specially-produced U.S. version of the fast-paced word game featuring host Bob Goen ("Entertainment Tonight," "Miss Universe").

Produced by Scott Sternberg Productions ("Sunday Morning Shootout," "Square Off"), THAT'S THE QUESTION is a half-hour series that combines word un-scrambling skills with a test of world history and pop culture trivia knowledge. The series is widely popular in numerous countries around the globe and is setting ratings records in the Netherlands, Switzerland and France.

The U.S. version of the series is being shot this week on the original set in Amsterdam, Holland. The show will feature American contestants and Goen as host.

In making the announcement at the network's Television Critics Association presentation, Rich Cronin, president and chief executive officer, GSN, said: "We are pleased to be able to introduce this exciting game to our audience with Bob Goen as host. The game combines three great game show concepts, trivia, scrambled words and puzzles, making for an entertaining half-hour that will complement our schedule perfectly."

Scott Sternberg, executive producer of THAT'S THE QUESTION and veteran game show producer, commented: "I am delighted that GSN has backed THAT'S THE QUESTION. I am looking forward to working with GSN on the show and am confident that it will replicate its European success in the American market."

Goen, who served as host of "Entertainment Tonight" from 1993 to 2004, began his broadcast career as a sportscaster and then made the transition to his life-long dream, hosting game shows. Among his credits, he hosted the daytime version of "Wheel of Fortune" and then the prime time show "The Hollywood Game." He is also known globally from hosting the "Miss Universe," "Miss USA," and "Miss Teen USA" Pageants.

THAT'S THE QUESTION is a fast paced word game that pits two contestants against each other in a race to win the grand prize in the show's conclusion. Every second counts as contestants battle each other unscrambling words for valuable seconds of time in the grand finale.

Widely acknowledged for his creative success in a variety of television genres, Scott Sternberg and his production company have a rich background producing game shows. His producing credits include such top-rated hits as "Hollywood Squares," "Love Connection," "Rock and Roll Jeopardy," "The Extreme Gong Show" and "Wheel of Fortune for Kids" in the game show genre. His most recent projects include the television industry focused "Square Off," the film industry series "Sunday Morning Shootout," and other original series including 'My First Time' and 'Spying on Myself'.
