New Game Show ’25 Words of Less’ is a Firm Go for Fall 2019

Stripped Series Returns After a Recent Summer Test-Run

Game show “25 Words or Less,” hosted by Meredith Vieira, will return to the Fox Television Stations for Fall of 2019 following a recent two-week test run. The half-hour game show is a collaboration of Lisa Kudrow, Dan Bucatinsky, Mary McCormack, Michael Morris, show-runner John Quinn, and Bruce Sterten, creator of “25 Words or Less” and “Taboo” board games.
The premise: “25 Words or Less” pits two teams comprised of celebrities and civilians against each other in a fast-paced word game with a top prize of 10,000 dollars. In the beginning rounds of the game, after a frenzied bidding session, one team member provides clues to two partners to help them guess a list of five words, using fewer than 25 clue words. In the final round, the contestant who has earned the most points has 60 seconds to get his partners to guess 10 words using only 25 words or less.
“25 Words or Less” will be produced by Dino Bones Productions and distributed by Twentieth Television.
