‘Press Your Luck,’ ‘Card Sharks’ Get Reboots at ABC

Network’s classic game show lineup also includes ”Celebrity Family Feud,“ ”Match Game,“ ”The $100,000 Pyramid“

ABC is adding two more classic game show reboots to its lineup.

“Press Your Luck” and “Card Sharks” have been picked up to series at the network and are set to go into production this spring, the network said on Wednesday. No host or premiere dates have been announced.

The Fremantle-produced game shows join a roster which also includes “Celebrity Family Feud,” “$100,000 Pyramid,” “Match Game” and “To Tell the Truth.”

“Press Your Luck” first aired in 1983 on CBS, running for three seasons with Peter Tomarken as host. A new version, titled “Whammy!” ran briefly on the Game Show Network in 2003.

During each game, three contestants compete against each other answering questions to earn spins on the “Big Board” where they could either win cash and prizes or lose all their earnings at the hands of a “Whammy.” John Quinn is showrunner on the new iteration, in addition to serving as an executive producer, along with Fremantle’s Jennifer Mullin.

Running in a number of different iterations since its debut in 1978, “Card Sharks” is described as a game where “one turn of a playing card can make you a winner or a loser!”

Contestants are asked to guess whether a face-down playing card is higher or lower than previous cards in order to win money. Per ABC, “Ultimately, players can either take their earned cash and quit or continue betting with the hope of reaching the top for a chance to take home a life-changing cash prize.”

The new “Card Sharks” showrunner and executive producer is Scott St. John. Jack Martin and Jennifer Mullin are also executive producers.
