HBO Max has given a first season order to Fremantle’s hit comedy game show TATTLETALES, bringing together celebrity couples to reveal hilarious insights about their relationships through fun challenges and games. Hosted and executive produced by 2x New York Times best-selling author, entrepreneur, restaurateur, chef and founder of Sweet July Productions Ayesha Curry and her husband, seven-time NBA All-Star and co-founder of Unanimous Media Stephen Curry, with production partners Fremantle and Sweet July Productions.
TATTLETALES invites three celebrity couples to join Ayesha and Stephen on an exclusive date night to go head-to-head on uncensored relationship trivia and games, competing to see who knows their partner best. All’s fair in love and war, and as personality quirks and hidden talents are revealed, teams are pushed to their limits with physical challenges. Questions from viewers on the interactive fan question board put couples’ relationships to the test as they compete for a donation to the charity of their choice.
Jennifer O’Connell (Executive Vice President Non-Fiction and Live-Action Family Programming, HBO Max) quote: “Ayesha and Stephen put a fresh new spin on a classic game show to really shake things up for these competing couples. Celebrity couples, they’re just like us!”
Jayson Dinsmore (President of Alternative Programming and Development, Fremantle) – “Fremantle is home to the world’s largest collection of cherished game show properties. The dynamic Ayesha and Stephen Curry are the perfect duo to bring this hilarious exploration of the trials and tribulations of relationships back to television.”
Ayesha and Stephen Curry: “We are so excited to be a part of bringing this awesome game show back to life,” Stephen Curry says. Ayesha continues, “Our families are huge fans of the original so to be able to host and produce this show together is such a joy. We’re both so busy with life that each episode will be an opportunity to hang out with some iconic power couples, have fun and let loose a bit. We can’t wait!”
