It’s been described as a “prisoner’s dilemma” kind of game show — you know, like when two people are arrested for a crime, put in separate rooms, and detectives try to get each to rat on the other?
…”It’s a show about human drama. . . . I spend my life trying to figure out if people are lying — this is no different,” Carlson joked to The TV Column.
If this pilot pans out, Carlson would wind up hosting the CBS game show while anchoring his MSNBC program, which is described by that network as a “fast-paced, no-holds-barred conversation about the day’s developments in news, politics, world issues and pop culture.” Game shows typically shoot batches of episodes in one session. And “Do You Trust Me?” will be produced in Studio City, Calif., not far from NBC’s Burbank headquarters. MSNBC is owned by NBC Universal.
