GSN will tap actor Donald Faison to host a new game show series set to debut in 2016, said network officials.
The half-hour show, Winsanity, will feature a contestant's attempt to rank 10 facts in numerical order. Each time the contestant is correct he wins a prize for himself as well as a randomly selected portion of the audience, according to GSN. Each time the contestant guesses wrong, the audience loses everything they've won.
Faison (Scrubs) will host the show, which is produced by Electus, according to GSN.
"Winsanity is a fun, raucous game where contestants play for prizes for themselves as well as members of the audience," said Amy Introcaso-Davis, EVP Programming and Development for GSN. "Donald Faison’s sharp comedic timing makes him the perfect host for this fast-paced game that is filled with terrific play-along."
