E!, the global, multi-platform brand for all things pop culture, announced the greenlight of a new special, “Celebrity Game Face,” executive produced and hosted by Kevin Hart premiering on Monday, July 6 from 10pm-11:15pm ET/PT. The special features Hart and his wife Eniko along with couples Terry and Rebecca King Crews, Sarah Hyland and her fiancé Wells Adams, and Joel and Sarah McHale, marking Joel’s first appearance back on the network since he hosted “The Soup.” “Celebrity Game Face” is produced by Critical Content and HartBeat Productions.
The Harts lead the teams through a hilarious game night full of fun, fresh and wildly unexpected moments, as the celebrities engage in a range of ridiculous physical challenges that viewers can play along at home. The pairs will show off their teenage dance moves in a tik “talk” challenge, feed each other a messy meal with a twist, attempt to interpret what their partners are saying while their mouths are full and race through their homes to find unexpected items to solve riddles. At the end of the night, the couples are awarded money for their charity of choice, but only one team will win the coveted “Hart of a Champion” trophy, which is a gold statue of baby Kevin Hart.
“Celebrity Game Face” is produced by Critical Content and HartBeat Productions with Kevin Hart, Jenny Daly, Tom Forman, Jon Beyer, Bryan Smiley, Mike Stein and Michael Canter serving as Executive Producers.
