ABC STACKS THE DECK AND WELCOMES THE WHAMMY BACK TO TV

ALL-NEW EPISODES OF CLASSIC GAME SHOWS 'CARD SHARKS' AND 'PRESS YOUR LUCK' SET FOR PRODUCTION

ABC Entertainment has picked up fan-favorite game shows "Press Your Luck" and "Card Sharks" for a return to television. The Fremantle-produced game shows will go into production this spring with exciting updates that everyone in the family will enjoy. Hosts and premiere dates will be announced soon.

"Press Your Luck" is a game of wits, strategy and even higher stakes as contestants try to avoid the iconic and devilish WHAMMY for a chance at life-changing cash and prizes. During each game, three contestants compete against each other answering questions to earn spins on the Big Board. Contestants then use their spins to win cash and prizes while trying to avoid the WHAMMY, who could take all of their winnings and leave them with nothing. The winning contestant moves on to the All-New Bonus Round to face the WHAMMY in a final battle for the chance to win a fortune. John Quinn is the showrunner for "Press Your Luck," in addition to serving as an executive producer, along with Fremantle's Jennifer Mullin.

"Card Sharks" is a game where one turn of a playing card can make you a winner or a loser! The road to glory and riches begins with two players who face off in a head-to-head elimination game with the goal of one player making it to the grand prize winning deck. The anticipation builds as each contestant has to decide if the odds are worth the risk of losing it all and making it to the big game. Ultimately, players can either take their earned cash and quit or continue betting with the hope of reaching the top for a chance to take home a life-changing cash prize. "Card Sharks" showrunner and executive producer is Scott St. John. Jack Martin and Jennifer Mullin are also executive producers.
