BET orders game show based on popular party game, 'Black Card Revoked'

The popular party game Black Card Revoked is coming to BET as a game show.

According to the network, “the nostalgia-filled show will test players’ knowledge of the nuances of the African American perspective – from pop culture milestones and entertainment moments to historical facts and politics.”

Actor and comedian Tony Rock has been tapped to host the show, which is described as a witty celebration of African-American life. Production on the 12-episode order will begin this month in Los Angeles for a January 10, 2018 premiere.

Episodes will feature three teams, each with a celebrity and contestant partner. “Like the party game, a piece of a team’s Black Card gets challenged for every wrong answer — like if you haven’t seen The Color Purple or Friday, you’re in trouble,” says BET. The teams will have a chance to win up to $10,000.

The show will be produced by Alternative Productions for BET, with David A. Hurwitz as an executive producer. Latesha Williams and Jay Bobo, the creators of the game will serve as co-executive producers.
