Howie Mandel is moving ahead with plans for a new game show, including issuing a casting call for contestants, the New York Post reports. The show is “White Elephant,” based on a popular holiday party game of the same name.
NBC has reportedly ordered seven episodes of the show, from the producers behind “Deal or No Deal.”
In the party game, contestants choose a gift from a collection of unmarked packages.
In the television version, it will be a warehouse of unmarked boxes filled with prizes, with contestants deciding — a la "Let’s Make A Deal" — whether to keep a prize or trade it in for one that might be better.
