ABC to Revive ‘Press Your Luck’ and ‘Card Sharks’ for This Summer

The Hosts and Premiere Dates to Be Announced

ABC has announced the upcoming revivals of game shows “Press Your Luck” and “Card Sharks.” The Fremantle-produced game shows will go into production this spring, with the hosts and premiere dates to be announced at a later time.

“Press Your Luck” is described as a game of wits, strategy and even higher stakes as contestants try to avoid the iconic and devilish WHAMMY for a chance at cash and prizes. During each game, three contestants compete against each other answering questions to earn spins on the Big Board. Contestants then use their spins to win cash and prizes while trying to avoid the WHAMMY, who could take all of their winnings and leave them with nothing. The winning contestant moves on to the All-New Bonus Round to face the WHAMMY in a final battle for the chance to win a fortune.

John Quinn is the showrunner for “Press Your Luck,” in addition to serving as an executive producer, along with Fremantle’s Jennifer Mullin.

“Card Sharks” is described as a game where one turn of a playing card can make you a winner or a loser! Each episode begins with two players who face off in a head-to-head elimination game with the goal of one player making it to the grand prize winning deck. The anticipation builds as each contestant has to decide if the odds are worth the risk of losing it all and making it to the big game. Ultimately, players can either take their earned cash and quit or continue betting with the hope of reaching the top for a chance to take home a life-changing cash prize. ”

Card Sharks” showrunner and executive producer is Scott St. John. Jack Martin and Jennifer Mullin are also executive producers.
