A series that had a strong run before it left prime time several years ago is about to return. ABC announced plans today to bring a new version of the Emmy-winning game show “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire” to its prime-time lineup.
The new version, to be hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, premieres April 8. The show, launching in celebration of the 20th anniversary of the original “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire,” will have a special run of episodes featuring celebrity contestants.
The original executive producer of “Millionaire,” multiple Emmy Award winner Michael Davies, returns to run the series.
