Steve Carell to executive produce new game show
Los Angeles: Actor Steve Carell is returning to American TV as the executive producer of a game show which pits celebrities and comedians against each other on a sloping stage.
`The Office` funnyman is set to helm eight-episode series `Slide Show` on America`s Fox network, reported Ace Showbiz.
The show will feature a number of stars trying to sing, dance and perform sketches - all while balancing on a stage, which is tilted at a 22.5 degree angle.
"Comedy is subjective. But if you don`t find Slide Show to be funny and enormously entertaining, then you will never be my friend," Carell said.
`Slide Show` is based on an international format, which has proven to be a hit in countries such as France, Australia and Portugal, and is scheduled to premiere in countries including Spain, the Netherlands and China in the coming months.
