Corie Henson left unscripted roles on the show
Previously executive VP of unscripted programming for WarnerMedia and TNT, Corie Henson left her roles on America Says after the two networks decided to rebrand their unscripted programming divisions. Her new role is executive VP, entertainment unscripted content for NBCUniversal’s Television and Streaming group. She will report to entertainment content chairman Susan Rovner. She will oversee all unscripted brands and formats, including game show formats, reality competitions, and talent competitions across NBCUniversal’s eight brands.
Henson developed unscripted programming strategy for WarnerMedia, which included shows such as The Cube, Wipeout, and The Go Big Show. She also oversaw the MasterChef franchise. She also oversaw all live specials, including Dancing with the Stars. She was also executive producer of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, Shark Tank, and the Harry Potter: Hogwarts Tournament of Houses.
Lingo is a new take on the long-running, word-guessing game show format
Previously known as America Says, Lingo is a new take on the long-running, word-guessing game show format. This version of the game is played like bingo. Teams of two compete to guess the mystery word within five turns. If the team guesses correctly, they earn the right to pull two lingo balls and win a cash prize. If the team gets a word wrong, they are shot at.
The game began with the first letter of the mystery word, which was generated by an Amiga computer. The team in control was then shown the next letter of the word, and they had to guess the word. The team in control then had to spell the word, and they could do this five times. If they get the word correct on the first try, they win $1,000. If they get it wrong, they get a free letter.
Lingo airs on Free TV, Keshet and RGE’s streamer
Whether you’re into music, movies or television, Keshet and RGE’s upcoming streaming platform Free TV is sure to please. The site will include an impressive number of high-quality TV channels, along with a selection of international films and original content. The site will also provide support for external streaming services, which should prove to be a boon for those seeking the ultimate in entertainment.
The new service is expected to roll out in the second half of the year, though a full list of channels and pricing is not yet available. The site will also feature a variety of other media – from live sports to original shows and other gimmicks. The site is expected to be a game changer, especially since many Israelis still subscribe to their old TV services.
