Fox Television Stations To Test ‘Person, Place, Or Thing’

The four-week preview of the new weekday half-hour game show hosted by Melissa Peterman begins on Aug. 8 in nine markets.

Fox Television Stations (FTS) will debut a four-week preview of Person, Place, or Thing with Melissa Peterman on Aug. 8 on select Fox-owned stations in markets including New York and Los Angeles.

Stephen brown, executive vice president of programming and development, said: “This is the perfect summer game: light, fun, and breezy, like an Aperol Spritz. Melissa is the host of this summer party- it’s her house, her game and you’ll leave having had the best time ever.”

Person, Place, or Thing is a game where players ask “yes” or “no” questions to guess an answer correctly. Created by Jeff Proctor and Paul Franklin, this game show intersperses comedy with common knowledge. Jeff Proctor, Paul Franklin, Melissa Peterman and Tracy Verna will serve as executive producers.

Twenty episodes will be distributed by Fox First Run.

Peterman said: “I think game shows are a lot of people’s happy place. I know they’re mine. Person, Place, or Thing is uncomplicated fun that the whole family can enjoy, especially since you’ll always be the best player from home.”
