“With the debut of these new series, we are creating a broad portfolio of new and original programming, both scripted and unscripted, that the entire family can watch together,” said Michael Dunn, managing director of BYUtv. “Filmed in our BYUtv studios and around Utah in association with our phenomenal production partners, they are all great examples of the engaging, family content BYUtv offers. These new shows add even more variety to an already compelling line-up of existing programming, rounding out a true ‘super week’ of television.”
“Dinner Takes All” is a family cooking competition show hosted by celebrity chef Kelsey Nixon (Food Network, Cooking Channel) in which two teams of five family members go head-to-head to cook their “best Sunday dinner.” Each team uses family recipes to create an entrée, three side dishes and a dessert while simultaneously playing interactive food-centric games for bonus points. Winning families receive a $10,000 cash prize. “Dinner Takes All” is from Keller/Noll (“Chopped,” “Chopped Junior”) and BYUtv.
The hilarious, interactive musical improv series “Show Offs” gives its cast, along with a special celebrity guest, the chance to “show off” by performing a spontaneous improvised play or musical, prompted by random ideas from the studio audience and accompanied by a live band. Hosted by comedian Casey Jost (“Late Night with Jimmy Fallon”), its cast features executive producers and co-creators Maclain Nelson (“The Saratov Approach”) and Jake Van Wagoner (“Impractical Jokers”), as well as Lisa Valentine Clark (“Random Acts”) and Hailey Smith (“Once I Was a Beehive”). “Show Offs” is from Kaleidoscope Pictures (“Winter Thaw,” “Instrument of War”), Good Guys Productions (“The Saratov Approach,” “Once I Was a Beehive”) and BYUtv.
The comedic game show “Battle of the Ages” pits two multi-generational family teams against each other in mental and physical challenges. With the opportunity to pick a competitor from the opposing team and test their knowledge on a specific era, this game show will get families talking and laughing while they learn more about each other. “Battle of the Ages” is from Bill’s Market & Television Productions (“Ellen’s Game of Games,” “Fear Factor”) and BYUtv.
These new shows join BYUtv’s original programming slate, including the new scripted adventure comedy “Dwight in Shining Armor,” in which the Middle Ages meets Middle America; the long-running sketch comedy series “Studio C,” which touts over 1 billion views on YouTube; “Relative Race,” the first family-history based competitive reality show that follows four teams as they meet relatives linked by DNA for the first time in a race throughout the United States; and “Random Acts,” an unscripted hidden-camera reality show that highlights the altruistic nature of human beings by featuring real people who are the recipients of random acts of kindness. BYUtv is available across the country via cable, satellite and multiple digital media platforms.
