Fox announces new 'Nothing But The Truth' lie detector game show
By Christopher Rocchio, 08/16/2007
Fox announced it has ordered Nothing But the Truth, the working title of a new game show that will quiz contestants on personal questions and use a lie detector to determine if they're telling the truth.
Contestants competing on Nothing But the Truth will be hooked-up to a lie detector and asked to answer 21 questions without fibbing for the chance to win the $500,000 grand prize. Not surprisingly, the questions' subject matter grows more difficult with each correct answer given and -- as friends and family members watch from the studio audience -- owning up to the truth becomes harder.
Sample questions contestants could be asked include have you ever lied to get a job; do you like your mother-in-law; do you really care about starving children in Africa; have you ever stolen anything from work; and have you ever cheated on your spouse.
Additional details about Nothing But the Truth -- including its host and premiere date -- will be announced soon.
Nothing But the Truth is based on a Colombian game show that has spawned similar series in 23 additional countries, including Spain, Brazil, Germany, France, Italy and the U.K..
Nothing But the Truth is being produced by Lighthearted Entertainment, Inc. Howard Schultz, the show's creator, and Michael Maddocks will serve as its executive producers
