NBC ANNOUNCES BOLD NEW GAME SHOW SERIES FROM EMMY-WINNING ACTOR/PRODUCER SEAN HAYES THAT BRINGS CONTESTANTS INSIDE EXCLUSIVE CELEBRITY WORLD IN "HOLLYWOOD GAME NIGHT"

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. - December 17, 2012 - NBC has ordered "Hollywood Game Night," a new hour-long game show series from Emmy Award-winning actor/producer Sean Hayes ("Will & Grace," "Hot in Cleveland"), 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.

The announcement was made today by Paul Telegdy, President, Alternative and Late Night Programming, NBC Entertainment.

"We are proud to be in business with Sean Hayes, who creatively brings so many good ideas such as this new game show romp that will be raucous and entertaining," said Telegdy. "Our audience will feel as if they are part of the party as we pull back the curtain on how today's Hollywood stars play at home while our contestants can earn big money."

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 your favorite celebrities.

"Hollywood Game Night" is produced by Hazy Mills Productions (NBC's "Grimm," "Hot in Cleveland, "Soul Man"), Mission Control Media (Syfy's "Face Off"), and Universal Television. Hayes, Todd Milliner, Michael Agbabian and Dwight D. Smith are the executive producers.
