Back in 1987, Burt Reynolds and his close friend Bert Convy created a television game show called Win, Lose, or Draw. The show paired celebrities with an everyday person and aired on NBC. Originally running from 1987 to 1989 in syndication, hosted by Convoy, the show mostly relied on a large drawing pad placed atop an easel for its games. Reynolds himself appeared on a few episodes, where he excelled at playing the game due largely in part to the fact that he had invented most of the games on the show at his own home parties. Now, thanks to the Disney Channel, the show is returning to the air.
Disney Channel is rebooting the game show and giving it a more modern spin. The new Win, Lose, or Draw will utilize cutting edge graphic technologies, interactive multi-touch screen displays, fun and comedic physical challenges, and motion control. Justin Willman (Cupcake Wars) has signed on to host, and the show will feature two teams composed each of two young contestants with a Disney star.
The show is being produced by game show whiz Scott St. John (Deal or No Deal) and produced by Summerdale Productions. Win, Lose, or Draw is set to being production in July and will premiere later in the year on Disney Channel.
