“Our families are huge fans of the original so to be able to host and produce this show together is such a joy,” said Ayesha Curry. “We’re both so busy with life that each episode will be an opportunity to hang out with some iconic power couples, have fun and let loose a bit. We can’t wait.”
Added Stephen Curry, “We are so excited to be a part of bringing this awesome game show back to life.”
