It appears that Nolan will be trying her hand at the world of game shows, appearing in a pilot for a reimagining of a classic panel game show.
According to Broadway World, Embassy Row, Werner Entertainment and Game Show Enterprises Studios have produced a pilot for the game show I’ve Got a Secret that was hosted by Nolan. The show now awaits word on whether or not it will get picked up by a network.
The original version of I’ve Got a Secret ran from 1952 to 1967 and has been revived several times, most recently in 2006 by GSN.
This “reimagined” version of the guessing game breaks the program into a part game show and part comedic talk show. Nolan will be flanked by four celebrity panelists who attempt to figure out a contestant’s “secret,” which is actually a pop culture fact. Nolan’s role as host will be to monitor the panelists as they get closer to solving the secrets and acting as a referee when needed.
“I’ve Got a Secret is a foundational format in the history of game shows. To get to reinvent it with a young host of such immense talent as Katie Nolan, and to populate the studio with such a desirable panel of comics is a testament to its natural and modern appeal,” Michael Davies, Embassy Row founder.
