NBC is bringing Hollywood Game Night home, with a “social distancing” edition of the competitive series airing Tuesday, May 12 at 10/9c.
Jane Lynch will host remotely, with Kristen Bell, Nick Jonas and Kenan Thompson competing against Sean Hayes, John Legend and Retta, all from their respective homes. The episode will raise money for Red Nose Day.
“So many people are facing profound loss and more uncertainty than ever before,” Lynch said in a statement. “All of us at Hollywood Game Night wanted to do something positive and helpful during this current crisis and since we’re of no use to the heroic medical professionals, a special episode of the show for such a worthy cause seemed like the next best thing!”
