This Jeff Foxworthy casting news is interesting -- not as interesting as Tim Tebow joining the Jets, but in a way, they're both kind of related: He'll be host of a new game show on GSN that'll pit contestants knowledge about the Bible. The release:
The American Bible Challenge is a studio-based game show in which contestants compete based on their knowledge of the Bible. Questions will be designed to acknowledge and celebrate the Bible’s continuing importance in contemporary life and culture.
The contestants will share their compelling back stories and each team will be playing for a worthy faith-based organization. "I am excited to be hosting a show about the bestselling book of all time. It will be interesting to find out what people really know, and an opportunity to present the Bible in a fun and entertaining way,” says Foxworthy.
Funky! Pilot shoots soon.
