Taye Diggs Named Host of ‘You’re Back in the Room’

New Fox Game Show to Feature Psychic Keith Barry

Taye Diggs (“Private Practice”) will host upcoming tentatively titled Fox game show “You’re Back in the Room.” Keith Barry will appear as the resident hypnotist. The logline: Based on the U.K. format of the same name, “You’re Back in the Room” will feature physical comedy and unpredictable situations, as contestants work together in teams and are challenged to complete a variety of simple, everyday tasks, from frosting a cake to blowing up balloons… after being hypnotized. With big money at stake, these contestants need to work together as a team, but their entranced state causes hysterical hurdles that unwittingly sabotage their progress.

The series will begin production in July.
