Probst Life in Pieces

TVLine Items: Life in Pieces Meets Survivor, Wet Hot Disney Star and More

Jeff Probst will ignite a family feud when the Survivor host guest-stars — as himself — on the sophomore CBS comedy Life in Pieces.

“The setup is there’s one [family member] who wants to be on [Survivor] and maybe somebody else vying for my attention,” Probst told CBS.com. “And as the producer of Survivor, I’m looking at their audition tape, trying to decide if they’re right for the adventure of their lifetime.”

Probst’s meta visit will air later this season.
