ABC rolled out plans today for a new show hosted by former late-night fixture Craig Ferguson. The network described the show, “The Hustler,” as a “mind-bending new game show.”
“‘The Hustler’ breaks the game show mold by featuring one player who secretly already knows the answers,” ABC said in today’s announcement. “Don’t be fooled. Just because they have a leg up doesn’t mean they’ll be taking home the prize.”
The show is set to begin production later this fall, with an airdate to be announced at a later date.
“Each episode of ‘The Hustler’ will follow five contestants as they collaborate to answer a series of trivia questions, with the goal of building a collective prize pot that increases with each correct answer,” ABC adds. “The catch? One of the five contestants, the Hustler, already knows the answers but must keep their identity a secret in order to have a shot at winning the grand prize.”
