*As we reported earlier, new game show is getting ready to make its way to NBC.
Called “It’s Worth What?” and hosted by Cedric the Entertainer, the show explores the value of hidden treasures in the attics of America.
According to HollywoodReporter.com, contestants will be taken through a series of challenges that increase in difficulty as they work to discover the value of items in various rounds as they compete for a $1 million prize.
Produced by Merv Griffin Entertainment, “Worth” was created by Roy Bank (“Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?”) and “Antiques Roadshow” host Lara Spencer. Cedric also serves as an executive producer.
The series marks the latest in the buried treasure shows craze; Fox recently green-lit Buried Treasure; Spike TV has Auction Hunters; Discovery runs Auction Kings and TLC airs What the Sell?!
“It’s Worth What?” premieres July 12 at 8 p.m.
Speaking of Ceddy Ced, on July 1 you can also see him in “Larry Crowne,” the new comedy film starring Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts. Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Taraji P. Henson and Pam Grier also co-star.
