Actor Fred Savage, fondly remembered for his six-year run as Kevin Arnold on ABC’s “The Wonder Years,” just landed a new job that brings him back to that network. ABC announced today that Savage will host the new game show “Child Support,” from Ricky Gervais and Banijay Studios North America.
“The one-hour, studio-based series will feature adult contestants and priceless interactions between funny man Ricky Gervais and a group of five kids, ages 6-9 years old, who say the most unpredictable things,” ABC said in its announcement. “Contestants are asked to answer 10 questions correctly to earn the top prize. If they answer incorrectly, the contestants have a chance to be saved by the five kids who have been asked the same question by Gervais.”
The premiere date for the show, which was previously known as “Five to Survive,” has not yet been announced. Please click here for additional details, including comments from Savage and others, in the ABC announcement.
