Joel McHale To Host New “Card Sharks” Show On ABC
Get excited Joel McHale fans! ABC Entertainment and Fremantle have announced that he is set to host the new show “Card Sharks”. It is a suspenseful game where a fortune can be won on the turn of a single playing card! The show is slated to air this summer on The ABC Television Network.
“I’m very excited to be hosting ‘Card Sharks,’” said Joel McHale. “Game winners can win tens of thousands of dollars and in an updated twist – losers will be fed to a pen of adult Tiger Sharks.”
The road to glory and riches begins with two players facing off in a head-to-head elimination race where the winning player claims a $10,000 cash prize and a chance to turn that amount into a life-changing payday. The anticipation builds as the winning contestant risks their prize on predicting seven final cards. The player leaves the game with whatever amount of money they have in their bank after their prediction, and results are revealed on the flip of their seventh and final card.

Joel McHale was most recently in “The Happy Time Murders,” as well as Netflix’s “A Futile and Stupid Gesture,” opposite Will Forte. McHale also recently hosted “The Joel McHale Show with Joel McHale” on Netflix, a half-hour topical series that took a sharp, absurdist look at pop culture and news from across the globe. In 2015, McHale wrapped the 12th and final season of E! Network’s “The Soup,” in which he satirized pop culture and current events.
Fans know him best for his starring role on the hit comedy series “Community.” Other starring feature roles include the Jerry Bruckheimer-produced, supernatural thriller “Deliver Us from Evil”; the Warner Bros’ romantic comedy “Blended,” alongside Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore; Seth MacFarlane’s comedy smash “Ted”; Steven Soderbergh’s “The Informant”; as well as “What’s Your Number?,” starring Chris Evans and Anna Faris. In 2014, McHale hosted the annual White House Correspondents’ Association dinner in Washington D.C. He also hosted “The 2015 ESPYS” on ABC. In the fall of 2016, McHale released his first book through Putnam Penguin, “Thanks for the Money: How to Use My Life Story to Become the Best Joel McHale You Can Be,” which is part memoir, part self-help guide. Both UTA and Ziffren Brittenham LLP rep McHale.
“Card Sharks” is produced by Fremantle. Scott St. John is showrunner and executive producer, and Jack Martin and Jennifer Mullin are also executive producers.
