Let’s Ask America is a Daily, 30-Minute Television Game Show from American Media Conglomerate E.W. Scripps Co.
Bill Bellamy who has been unemployed for quit sometime has finally landed a job. The on again-off again entertainer is back on the scene as host for Let’s Ask America. But, would you watch a game show with Bellamy? You can expect plenty of humor from this seasoned comedian/actor, while viewing or competing from the comfort of your own home. While Let’s Ask America was originally developed by Jeff Apploff (Don’t Forget the Lyrics, Take Me Out), the show which is going into its third season will be produced by Michael Canter (1 vs. 100, Parental Control) and Jeff Krask (Deal or No Deal, The Mole). “I look forward to working with the great executives at Telepictures and Scripps and taking this show to the next level,” said Bellamy. “Our contestants are a virtual gold mine for non-stop laughs. I can’t wait to interact with them. Our audiences can look forward to great entertainment from Let’s Ask America every day.”
Four contestants are chosen to compete for cash and prizes via skype, while Bellamy will poll America on wacky topics to find out what people are thinking. “What a treat for viewers of Let’s Ask America to see Bill Bellamy work his magic with contestants to find humor in the most unexpected places,” said Bob Sullivan, VP of programming for Scripps. “Our expanded national audience will appreciate his comedic genius, which will fuel an already fast-paced show.”
Let’s Ask America will expand its programming this fall and will be syndicated by the Game Show Network in January.
