The mystery-word guessing game, first hosted on then-Game Show Network by Chuck Woolery in 2002,  will be produced by ZOO Productions, which makes Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?

Production is starting on a daily strip with an initial order of 40 episodes, to premiere in June.

"Bill Engvall's humor is a great fit for our audience," Kelly Goode, SVP
of programming at GSN, said in a release. "We look forward to his
joining our first-class line-up of talent."
