GSN will continue to mine the competition/game show genre with renewals of two series, Snap Decision and Cover Story, as well as the greenlighting of two other shows, the network announced Monday.
The David Alan Grier-hosted Snap Decision, in which contestants test their preconceptions, first impressions and gut instincts, will return for a second season, said network officials.
A second freshman series, Cover Story, also has been renewed after launching in January. The series of documentary specials looks at the fascinating personalities, memorable moments and outrageous scandals in and around the most popular games shows of all time, the network said.
The series join returning series Divided and Winsanity on GSN's programming lineup.
In addition, the network has greenlit two new shows, including America Says, an in-studio game where two teams of friends and family look to fill in the blanks to match survey responses that cover every topic under the sun; and Caroline & Friends, a comedic, family-friendly series hosted by Caroline Rhea (Sabrina The Teenage Witch) that showcases videos from around the web.
Other shows in development include Catch My Bluff, Movin’ Money and Mall Madness.
"GSN is the home for engaging game show programming that attracts high-value consumers looking for a family environment filled with winning and fun,” said Fran Shea, executive vice president, programming and marketing for GSN, in a statement. “Developing and producing new strip programming provides our loyal audience with a viewing destination they’ve come to expect and feel comfortable with, as GSN is an essential part of their daily routine.”
