SURVEY SAYS!... AL ROKER TO HOST "CELEBRITY FAMILY FEUD" AS PART OF NBC'S ALL-AMERICAN SUMMER PREMIERING TUESDAY, JULY 1

"American Idol" and "America's Got Talent" Producers Bring Celebrity Version of Beloved Game Show to Primetime

BURBANK - April 17, 2008 - One hundred people surveyed, top ten answers on the board and celebrity 'families' behind the buzzers. Al Roker will host all the action when "Celebrity Family Feud" joins NBC's All-American Summer primetime line-up premiering Tuesday, July 1 (8-9 p.m. ET), it was jointly announced today by Craig Plestis, Executive Vice President, Alternative Programming, Development and Specials, NBC Entertainment and Cecile Frot-Coutaz, CEO of FremantleMedia North America.

Produced by FremantleMedia North America, "Celebrity Family Feud" will be a star-studded version of the beloved and enduring game show, featuring four celebrity families matching wits each week to raise money for their respective charities.

Gaby Johnston, executive producer of the current syndicated "Family Feud" hosted by John O'Hurley, and Toby Gorman, executive producer of the UK version "Family Fortunes," will executive produce. All celebrities will be announced at a later date.

"This is a no-holds-barred, laugh-out-loud series that allows celebrities to be themselves among their family members or among longtime co-stars who have become like family," said Plestis. "Viewers can't help but play along, and with Al Roker at the helm, it promises to provide high energy, interactive fun...with the bonus of exposing the unscripted side of our favorite celebrities."

"We're thrilled to once again bring a hugely successful game show format to primetime," says Cecile Frot-Coutaz, CEO of FremantleMedia North America, producers of the current syndicated version as well as the original classic game show.
