Antenna TV's It's Your Lucky Day and Birthday Marathons; The CW Orders US Version of Would I Lie To You?

It's Your Lucky Day St. Patrick's Day Marathon

This St. Patrick's Day, it's your lucky day as Antenna TV presents a winning streak of the luckiest episodes from its lineup on Wednesday, March 17. It's a full day of lucky episodes from the lineup of Antenna TV shows, including Three's Company, Family Ties and Alice. "It's Your Lucky Day" St. Patrick's Day Marathon airs Wednesday, March 17 starting at 5:00am ET on Antenna TV. All series will air in their regular weekday timeslots, but with gambling/betting themed episodes. From Atlantic City to Las Vegas, watch Antenna TV characters gamble, make bets, win prizes, and play poker as they try their own luck. Also, Antenna TV has announced on Wednesday, March 10 from 5-10pm, AnTENna TV's Birthday Party continues with a ten episode marathon of fan favorite The Jeffersons, #9 on their fan poll list. Last month on Feb. 10 That Girl aired, while on Jan. 10, there was a 10 episode Bewitched marathon, as that series was voted #1 in a fan poll of top Antenna shows. And of course when Antenna TV turned 10 on Jan. 1 they aired an hour each of their top 10 most popular shows (in order from #1 to #10: Bewitched, Three's Company, The Facts of Life, Who's the Boss?, Hazel, Family Ties, I Dream of Jeannie, Alice, The Jeffersons and That Girl). So it looks like they are counting down now starting from 10 as of last month. Looks like #8 Alice will air next month on April 10, but stay tuned for more info!

Would I Lie To You?

The CW Network continues to expand its growing alternative programming slate by ordering original U.S. versions of British comedy panel series Would I Lie To You? and the satirical British horror whodunit reality competition series Killer Camp. Additionally, to introduce U.S. viewers to the series, The CW has acquired two seasons of the British version of Would I Lie To You?. Specific premiere dates for both series will be announced at a later time. A hilarious comedy panel show that elevates the "art of lying," the British series, Would I Lie To You?, is hosted by Rob Brydon (Gavin & Stacey) and features Lee Mack (Not Going Out) and David Mitchell (Phineas and Ferb) as lightning-quick team captains joined by a stellar cast of celebrity guests who weave elaborate tales... that may or may not be the truth. Competing teams then ask questions and watch body language to determine which are crazy but true, and which are made-up stories. Created by Peter Holmes, who executive produces with Rachel Ablett and Ruth Phillips, Britain's Would I Lie To You? is produced by Zeppotron (A Banijay Company). For the U.S., Banijay’s Emmy Award-winning Truly Original is producing a new, original Would I Lie To You? series exclusively for The CW Network, with Steven Weinstock, Glenda Hersh, Robert King, Michelle King, Liz Glotzer and Aasif Mandvi executive producing.

The CW's U.S. version of Killer Camp will return to "Camp Pleasant" as a mix of 13 unlucky American and British campers navigate through new deadly twists and surprises while competing to expose the "killer" among them for a share of the $50,000 cash prize. Each night one of them will be viciously dispatched by camp handyman Bruce, who’s back with counselor Bobby (Comedian Bobby Mair) with a whole host of surprises and hilariously elaborate new murders. Executive produced by Karen Smith, Steph Harris and Ben Wilson, KILLER CAMP is produced by Tuesday’s Child Television and distributed by Keshet International. The British version of Killer Camp aired on The CW last summer.
