FremantleMedia North America is bringing Match Game back to television with a contemporary twist. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the show is being shopped to cable networks and a deal is nearing completion with a casting announcement to follow.
The show originally debuted in 1962 and has gone through many changes over the years. The show features a panel of celebrity guests with contestants trying to play match up with their words. There is no indication of what kind of new spin will be put on the game show.
The series doesn't have a set start date at this time.
