Comedian Elayne Boosler has signed on to front Pax TV's new game show, Balderdash, loosely based on the Mattel Inc. board game of the same name.
Boosler will preside over a panel of celebrity comics who bluff answers to a variety of questions.
The half-hour series show, which launches later this summer, is produced by The Hatchery and co-executive produced by Stephen Radosh (Hollywood Squares). The Hatchery's principals include former Mattel President Bruce Stein and ex-Hallmark Channel and Fox Kids Network President Margaret Loesch.
