Comedians Hughley and Black (pictured) have signed on to co-host the upcoming TBS series "Trust Me, I'm a Game Show Host," scheduled to premiere late this year.

The series, which is being produced by Mark Burnett's One Three Media and London-based production company Monkey, will find Hughley and Black each presenting a single contestant with a bizarre fact — one true, one false. The contestant must then determine which statement is accurate, with the player who correctly guesses the most true statements taking home a cash prize.

Burnett is executive producing the series, with Monkey's Will MacDonald and David Granger also executive producing.

Burnett said that Hughley and Black are ideal choices for the game of deliberate deception.

"This is a game show where a host is legitimately trying to convince a contestant to choose the wrong answer," said Burnett. “D.L. and Michael’s comedic styles are perfect for pulling this off. The comedy itself will be must-see television.”
