NBC has ordered "Hollywood Game Night," a new hour-long game show series from Emmy Award-winning actor/producer Sean Hayes ("Will & Grace," "Grimm"), based on his real-life "game nights," featuring A-list celebrities hanging out and living it up in a cocktail party atmosphere.
In the series, which has an eight-episode order, two contestants in each episode will be transported from their everyday lives into a once-in-a-lifetime night of fun and celebration as they step beyond the velvet rope and rub shoulders with the celebrity crowd. Part Hollywood club and part casual game night, the series promises viewers a fresh look into the lives of the rich and famous.
At the end, one of the two contestants will walk away with a cash prize and a night of stories and memories for friends and family back home. Featuring well-known names from the world of television, film, sports and politics, among other entities, this isn't a typical game show - it's a peek behind the curtain of the Hollywood scene and a chance to hang out for a night with a group of favorite celebrities.
