Hasbro has devised game show versions of two of its most popular board games.

The Game of Life show “will be presented in an entirely new way as each family team gets a chance at the iconic spinner and hops in the car for a one-of-a-kind journey through a larger-than-life virtual world.”

Scrabble Showdown brings "the world’s most popular word game to life in this new game show in which families use teamwork to solve a variety of word games and puzzles that test their speed, spelling and vocabulary for points and prizes.”

“We have a tremendous advantage with strong, proven brands, and we are working with some of the best creative minds to bring those brands to life” said Margaret Loesch, president and CEO of The Hub – a channel part-owned by Hasbro.

She added: “The programs that we are announcing today will add strength, dimension and excitement to a schedule that is already resonating with viewers and building an extremely loyal audience.”
