BULLSH*T THE GAME SHOW (Netflix, New!) - Howie Mandel has been tapped to host a new game show on the streamer which will "offer contestants a chance to win big money, even when they don't know the correct answer. Throughout the game, players will work their way up a money ladder either by answering questions correctly or by confidently giving incorrect answers - and persuading others that they are accurate. With a lot of money on the line, in this game you don't have to be the smartest person in the room to win, you just have to convince everyone that you are." Christopher Potts and Jonty Nash are behind the project, which is filming in New Mexico for a summer premiere. David Friedman, David Eilenberg and Simon Thomas will also executive produce for ITV America with Alan Carter directing. (Deadline.com)
