YARA SHAHIDI, RUSSELL PETERS, MICHELLE BUTEAU AND JEREMY SISTO FLIP OUT OVER THE TRUTH ON AN ALL-NEW EPISODE OF ABC’S ‘TO TELL THE TRUTH,’
THURSDAY, JULY 9
Hosted by Anthony Anderson
“508 (Yara Shahidi, Russell Peters, Michelle Buteau, Jeremy Sisto)” – Actress Yara Shahidi, comedian Russell Peters, actress and comedian Michelle Buteau, and actor Jeremy Sisto make up the celebrity panel on “To Tell the Truth,” airing THURSDAY, JULY 9 (10:00-11:00 p.m. EDT), on ABC. This week’s panel of heroes and imposters feature an original Chippendale’s dancer, a house-flipper, a princess costume designer, a professional armpit sniffer and a parkour champion. Episodes can also be viewed the next day on demand and on Hulu.
Hosted by the star of ABC’s hit comedy “black-ish,” Anthony Anderson, “To Tell the Truth” is a funny reimagination of the beloved game show that first aired in 1956. This version takes the excitement to another level, featuring captivating characters from pop culture. Anderson’s mother, Mama Doris, is also part of the banter as a sassy, straight-talking commentator.
In each round, the panel is presented with three people who all claim to be the same person with the same incredible talent, job or achievement. One is sworn to tell the truth while the other two use every trick they can to deceive the panel. The panel of celebrities has a chance to grill each participant before taking turns deciding who they think is telling the truth.
“To Tell the Truth” is produced by Fremantle. Alycia Rossiter is showrunner and executive producer, and Jennifer Mullin, Jeff Gaspin, George Moll and Anthony Anderson are executive producers.
A TV parental guideline will be assigned to this episode at a later date.
