MGM To Distribute “Let’s Ask America” Nationally
You may have heard the news on Twitter the other day, but if not, you’ll hopefully be excited. People all across the country will finally get to see why we won’t stop talking about Let’s Ask America. Scripps has selected MGM Domestic Television Distribution to take their popular syndicated game show Let’s Ask America national. Now airing in only a select number of Scripps-owned markets, the Kevin Pereira-hosted quiz show has been an effective hit for stations. Each episode sees contestants answering survey questions to win up to $50,000 all from home using Skype.
“Let’s Ask America offers audiences around the country the opportunity to participate in a game show for cash prizes right from their own living rooms,” said John Bryan, MGM’s president of domestic television distribution, in a statement. “We are thrilled to further our relationship with Scripps and to distribute this already successful program across all stations in markets nationwide.”
“This deal extends the Scripps commitment to original program development,” said Brian Lawlor, senior VP of the Scripps television division, also in a statement. “We have created strong partnerships that have led to high-quality television, and we’re not finished yet.”
We’re looking forward to letting everyone see what you voted as the best new game show in 2012 (for good reasons). Check out their Halloween episode below.
