The Game Show Network has found a reason to get into politics: the California recall, which will be spoofed in an October special.
The channel announced today that “Who Wants to Be Governor of California? The Debating Game” will include a political debate produced in the style of a game show.
In a statement, channel president Rich Cronin says, “Politics is the ultimate game and the California recall election is one of the most bizarre contests in American history.”
The October first program will chronicle the campaigns of five candidates whose names have yet to be announced. The debate will include buzz-in answers and bonus questions.
The five will compete for a prize of $21,200. That´s the maximum corporate campaign contribution allowed by California law.
