American game shows are taking a trip across the pond. Legendary game shows The Price is Right, Play Your Cards Right, and Strike it Lucky, have been picked up and rebooted by British television network ITV.
Deadline is reporting the shows will air on the network in a seven-part series and will be hosted by Alan Carr. TPIR as it is also known, originally aired on NBC and was hosted by Bill Cullen with participants competing to win cash and prices by guessing the correct price of household items. The show is currently being aired on CBS as a part of their daytime line up.
Strike It Lucky is based on the now defunct syndicated show Strike it Rich, which aired on both radio and television from 1947 to 1957 on CBS and NBC, centered on contestants answering trivia questions to move up an arch way. Play Your Cards Right, based on the US game show Card Sharks. It features players competing for control of a row of huge playing cards by answering questions given to them by the host. They must correctly guess if the next card is higher or lower than the previous one in value. The show originally aired from 1978 to 1981 on NBC and was revived on CBS from 1986 to 1989. It had another incarnation in syndication from 2001 to 2002. This summer, ABC will bring it back on television with host, Joel McHale.
