Give Us A Clue will be back!

Post by Jason Larsen » Thu Apr 15, 2010 5:54 pm

The UK charades game will be returning to TV soon with a whole new version. Unfortunately, Talkback Thames, the UK division of Fremantle Media, is producing it.

A pilot has been shot and it will hopefully be pitched to a UK network no later than this fall.

Tom, I doubt it.

I think the most annoying thing on the new version would be us probably hearing something like, "My name is... Vernon Kay!"

Didn't this normally air at about 2:30pm?

I hope so too.
Or James Corden.
Or Michael McIntyre.

Lionel Blair should host it - he's plenty old enough to qualify for a desk job.

Danny John-Jules could take his place in a team.

It might be closed captioned, Damian!

Who knows!

Well, i think closed captioning is like subtitles, right? You've surely seen where they have a person inset in a bubble, using sign language for deaf people right? Like this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZvF6Ejr3 ... re=related

That's what Damian meant, and give us a clue is charades. Boom boom! :)
