Actor-comedian Bob Saget has signed a deal to host NBC’s game show “1 Versus 100,” his first such gig since his successful seven-year turn at the helm of ABC’s “America’s Funniest Home Videos.”
Based on a popular international format, “1 Versus 100” is a trivia contest pitting one player against a group of 100 people for a chance to win a multimillion-dollar cash prize.
The show is eyed as a companion to NBC’s hot game show “Deal or No Deal,” hosted by Howie Mandel.
Saget recently wrapped the feature mockumentary “Farce of the Penguins,” which he wrote, directed and produced. The film is being released by indie distributor ThinkFilm.
