New York Giants great-turned-media-personality Michael Strahan has booked another TV hosting gig on top of his duties as co-host of Live! With Kelly and Michael and being a regular guest on Good Morning America.
The 44-year-old former footballer will serve as host and executive producer of a rebooted version of the classic Pyramid game shows. The new version is titled $100,000 Pyramid (the potential amount of prize money awarded each episode) will pair contestants with celebrity guests and sports stars to compete for the weekly crown.
“Growing up, ‘Pyramid’ was one of my favorite shows to watch with my family,” Strahan said. “Watching the celebrities and players become a competitive team is always fun to see. I’m looking forward to bringing it back for new generations to enjoy as well!”
First hitting the airwaves in 1973 as The $25,000 Pyramid with host Dick Clark, the beloved game show staple underwent various changes throughout the years until being cancelled in 2004.
The $100,000 Pyramid will be taped in New York in front of a live audience and is set to premiere season one’s 10 episodes this summer.
