THE CW NETWORK EXPANDS
ITS ALTERNATIVE PROGRAMMING SLATE
Network Orders Original U.S. Versions of British Series
“Would I Lie To You?” and “Killer Camp”
Additionally, The CW Has Acquired Episodes of British Edition of “Would I Lie To You?” For Broadcast in the U.S.
March 8, 2021 (Burbank, CA) -- The CW Network continues to expand its growing alternative programming slate by ordering original U.S. versions of British comedy panel series WOULD I LIE TO YOU? and the satirical British horror whodunit reality competition series KILLER CAMP. Additionally, to introduce U.S. viewers to the series, The CW has acquired two seasons of the British version of WOULD I LIE TO YOU?.
A hilarious comedy panel show that elevates the “art of lying,” the British series, WOULD I LIE TO YOU, is hosted by Rob Brydon (“Gavin & Stacey”) and features Lee Mack (“Not Going Out”) and David Mitchell (“Phineas and Ferb”) as lightning-quick team captains joined by a stellar cast of celebrity guests who weave elaborate tales… that may or may not be the truth. Competing teams then ask questions and watch body language to determine which are crazy but true, and which are made-up stories. Created by Peter Holmes, who executive produces with Rachel Ablett and Ruth Phillips, Britain’s WOULD I LIE TO YOU? is produced by Zeppotron (A Banijay Company). For the U.S., Banijay’s Emmy Award-winning Truly Original is producing a new, original WOULD I LIE TO YOU? series exclusively for The CW Network, with Steven Weinstock, Glenda Hersh, Robert King, Michelle King, Liz Glotzer and Aasif Mandvi executive producing.
