Disney Channel will resurrect the classic game show Win Lose or Draw for its tween-targeted audience, according to network officials.
Cupcake Wars host Justin Willman will host the new kids and Family-friendly version of the classic game show, which will begin filming in July for a premiere later this year on the Disney Channel. Disney ran a teen-version of Win, Lose or Draw, which pits two teams competing in a battle of drawing skills and creativity, in the early 1990s.
The original version of Win, Lose or Draw aired on NBC from 1987-1990.
"We're eager to introduce a generation of kids and families to a 21st century version of the popular Win, Lose or Draw, and are confident its creative game play plus its incorporation of physical comedy will complement our programming line-up," said Adam Bonnett, Senior Vice President, Original Programming, Disney Channel in a statement.
