NBC has named comedian Howie Mandel host of its new Endemol USA reality series “Deal or No Deal.” The series, where contestants play for a top prize worth up to 1 million dollars, is based on a format from Endemol that is currently broadcast in 38 countries. NBC did not announce airdates for “Deal.”

Mr. Mandel, a talk show regular and prolific voice-over talent, recently starred in the Bravo series “Hidden Howie: The Private Life of a Public Nuisance.”

“Deal” is produced by Endemol USA, a division of Endemol Holding. The series is executive-produced by Scott St. John.
