Will Arnett Is Producing a ‘Gong Show’ Revival at ABC
ABC is bringing back ’70s game show The Gong Show with some help from Will Arnett. The network announced today that it’s ordered ten episodes of a Gong Show revival with Arnett attached as a co-executive producer. Every episode will feature a revolving panel of guest judges and “celebrate un-traditionally talented, unique performers plucked from the Internet and put on a primetime stage.” A premiere date for the revival has not yet been announced.
The original Gong Show aired from 1976-1980 and has been rebooted several times, including on Comedy Central with the short-lived The Gong Show with Dave Attell in 2008.
