Game Show Network has ordered an all-new edition of the word association game show “Chain Reaction” for 2021, hosted by Dylan Lane, who originally hosted the show’s network premiere 14 years ago. The logline: Based on the Sony Pictures Television format, the classic game show – which originally debuted in the 1980s – features two teams competing against one another to complete chains of words, after the first and last words of the chain are revealed. Each word in the chain is related in some way to the word directly above and below it. By making inferences based on the revealed words and the revealed letters in incomplete words, contestants try to fill in the word chains to win money.
“Chain Reaction” was most recently seen on Game Show Network from 2015-2016 with Mike Catherwood as host. Mike Richards (“Jeopardy,” “Wheel of Fortune,”) serves as executive producer.
