Bounce TV Lands Off-Net GSN Series Rights
Bounce TV has acquired broadcast television rights to The American Bible Challenge and Catch 21 game shows in a new agreement with GSN, it was announced by Bounce TV Chief Operating Office Jonathan Katz. Both shows will debut later this summer.
The American Bible Challenge is the highest-rated original series in GSN history. The one-hour game show, hosted by comedian Jeff Foxworthy, brings together contestant teams who compete based on their knowledge of the Bible as they strive to win prize money for the charity of their choice. Multiple Grammy Award winner Kirk Franklin serves as musical co-host.
The American Bible Challenge is produced by RelativityREAL, with RelativityREAL’s Tom Forman (Extreme Makeover: Home Edition) serving as executive producer along with Janelle Fiorito. Jeff Foxworthy also serves as producer.
Catch 21 is one of GSN viewers’ favorite series, with ratings and key demo delivery having grown with each season. Its fast-paced game play features host Alfonso Ribeiro quizzing contestants three at a time as they compete to win playing cards, and try to build the hand that comes closest to 21. Catch 21 was created by Merrill Heatter and is executive produced by Heatter and Scott Sternberg of Scott Sternberg Productions.
In addition, Bounce TV recently landed the broadcast network rights to The Newlywed Game, hosted by The View‘s Sherri Shepherd.
