Melissa Peterman, known for her hilarious portrayal of Barbra Jean in the hit series “Reba,” is set to host a brand new game show called “Person, Place or Thing.”
According to Deadline, Fox First Run has given the show the green light after a successful four-week test run last year. This fall, Peterman will grace our screens once again, challenging contestants to guess the identity of a person, place, or thing by asking “yes” or “no” questions. The show promises to blend comedy and common knowledge, ensuring that we’ll be hooked for the full 30 minutes of each episode.
In an enthusiastic statement, Peterman expressed her excitement about working on this innovative game show. She assured fans that “Person, Place or Thing” is a game for the 21st Century, filled with unexpected turns that will leave us guessing. She even teased that we’ll be shouting out answers at our TVs from the comfort of our homes. Although she couldn’t promise we’d actually hear them, I’m sure many of us will still give it a try!
Fox First Run has ordered a whopping 180 episodes of “Person, Place or Thing.”
We’ll have plenty of opportunities to enjoy Melissa Peterman’s delightful hosting skills. The show is the brainchild of creators Jeff Proctor and Paul Franklin, who are joined by Peterman, Tracy Verna, and David Hurwitz as executive producers. With such a talented team behind it, this show is surely set to be a success.
While we eagerly await the premiere, it’s worth noting that Peterman has been keeping busy with other projects as well. You can catch her in CBS’ popular sitcom Young Sheldon, where she has a recurring role. It’ll be interesting to see how she balances her commitments and brings her infectious energy to both the scripted and unscripted realms of television.
As fall approaches, we can anticipate a plethora of unscripted options, including game shows and reality programs, across various networks. The competition will be fierce, but we have a feeling that “Person, Place or Thing” will stand out from the crowd.
So, mark your calendars! Melissa Peterman is bringing her charm and wit to the game show world, and we can’t wait to see her shine. It’s going to be an exhilarating fall season filled with laughter, suspense, and endless entertainment. Let the countdown begin!
