Game Show Network executives in New York City on Thursday had a production meeting with producers for a game show called named So, Who's The Gay? This is a working title. From what I hear, this is a gay game show (the first ever on television) that has been underway for a long time, has shot a pilot episode but has never found a television network to pick up the show.
From a quick Google search, most information on this project can be found on one webpage and their quiet Twitter page as well. So Who's The Gay? received over $15,000 in funding with 80 backers in late 2013. From the updates at the bottom of the page, So, Who's The Gay? taped a pilot in 2014. In the video displayed, the show is hosted by a man named 'Francisco.' The show will not put down stereotypes and will share the similarities of gays. The show's goal is to dismantle LGBT stereotypes. The format is a 30-minute game show with three contestants, two straight and one gay. A celebrity guest will appear on each episode to question each contestant on their life and sexuality.
I personally do not know much more about this and do not know if this will work on Game Show Network. Shows like Baggage and Skin Wars have worked for GSN that are not exactly "your grandmother's show", programming described by GSN's Amy Introcaso-Davis at a recent GSN conference. So, Who's The Gay? could work best as the lead-out to Skin Wars this summer it appears at this point. The only reason we, general game show fans will really find out if this comes to life, at least on GSN, is if So Who's The Gay? is mentioned in the next programming upfronts.
