Syfy Orders ‘The Great Debate’ TV Show Based on Comic-Con Panel

Series hosted by comedian Baron Vaughn will debut this summer

Syfy has picked up 12 episodes of a game show based on the hit Comic-Con panel “The Great Debate,” the network announced Tuesday.

Hosted by comedian Baron Vaughn, who also hosted the panel, “Syfy Wire’s The Great Debate” will feature a panel of celebrity guests and pose questions like, “Who’d be a worse boss, Darth Vader or Joker?” or “Would you rather have a Green Lantern ring or a Wizard Wand?”

The show is set to begin filming in Los Angeles next month, with an eye to premiere this summer. No guests have been announced, but past Comic-Con panel participants have included Orlando Jones, John Barrowman, Adam Savage, Aisha Tyler, Joe Manganiello, Thomas Lennon, Felicia Day and John Hodgman.

The show hails from B17 Entertainment, an Industrial Media company, with Rhett Bachner and Brien Meagher serving as executive producers. T.J. Chambers is executive producer and showrunner.

Syfy’s programming slate currently includes the fifth season of “The Magicians,” the upcoming fifth and final season of “Van Helsing,” the long-delayed third season of “Wynonna Earp,” as well as upcoming comedy series “Resident Alien.”
