Message par Beauty Sirikarn »

Long-running US quiz programme Jeopardy has picked two new permanent hosts to replace presenter Alex Trebek, who died of cancer last year.

Programme producer Mike Richards and Big Bang Theory actress Mayim Bialik will share presenting duties, Sony Pictures announced on Wednesday.

The new season of the trivia game show - where contestants must answer clues "in the form of a question" - will debut on 13 September. slot pg

It will be the programme's 38th season.

Mr Richards will also continue in his role as executive producer of the series, Sony said in a statement, as well as remain producer of game show Wheel of Fortune. He served as guest host in the winter of last year, as the show introduced a rotating roster of presenters to try out for the top job.

Ms Bialik will lead "primetime and spinoff series, including the upcoming all-new Jeopardy! National College Championship set to air on ABC next year, as the studio looks to extend the Jeopardy! franchise to new platforms," Sony added.
