*NBC has tapped D.L. Hughley to host a pilot for its new game show called “Who’s Bluffing Who?” where contestants must try to bluff their way into winning a half-million dollars.
For each episode, seven contestants will use their knowledge and deceptive talents — and even steal one another’s money — in order to advance in the game as they are gradually reduced to a single winner.
The show comes from Jeff Apploff, who previously created “Don’t Forget the Lyrics.”
“Who’s Bluffing Who?” is one of two truth-spotting game shows in the works, according to the Hollywood Reporter. ABC is piloting “Survivor” producer Mark Burnett’s “Trust Me, I’m a Game Show Host,” where contestants try to spot which of two hosts are lying.
One of “The Original Kings of Comedy,” Hughley starred in the ABC sitcom “The Hughleys” and was recently a correspondent for “The Jay Leno Show.”
