Exclusive: Disney Channel Brings Back Game Show Win, Lose or Draw

Apr 17 2013, 5:52pm CDT | by

Disney Channel is dusting off Win, Lose or Draw, the late 1980s game show that was co-created by Burt Reynolds. The new version will be kid and family-friendly and employ modern technology.

Justin Willman (Cupcake Wars) will host the revival, in which two teams — each comprised of two kid contestants and a Disney star — compete in a game of drawing skills and wit. The show will start production in July and premiere later this year.

In the original series, one player would be asked to draw a clue, while teammates must identify it before the clock ran out. This time, the players' drawing board will utilize motion control, interactive multi-touch screen displays and graphic technology.

"We're eager to introduce a new generation of kids and families to a 21st century version of the popular Win, Lose or Draw, and are confident its creative game play plus its incorporation of physical comedy will complement our programming lineup," says Adam Bonnett, senior vice president of original programming at Disney Channel.

It's a return to the genre for Disney Channel, which hasn't regularly aired game shows in at least a decade. In the late 1990s, Disney Channel ran game shows such as Off the Wall, Mad Libs and Z Games, but more recently has focused on scripted fare.

Reynolds is said to have come up with the idea for the original Win, Lose or Draw based on a game he played at his house. In fact, the set for the original series — which he co-created with late game show host Bert Convy — was modeled after Reynolds' living room. Convy (and later, Robb Weller) hosted the syndicated version, which aired from 1987 to 1990, while Vicki Lawrence hosted a daytime version for NBC from 1987 to 1989.

Disney Channel aired an earlier youth version, Teen Win, Lose or Draw, from 1989 to 1992. The revival comes from executive producer Scott St. John (Deal or No Deal) and Summerdale Prods. with ABC Media Group.

Willman's credits also include The Hub's Scrabble Showdown and Hubworld, and he hosts Magic Meltdown on the Nerdist YouTube channel. As "Justin Kredible," Willman is a magician who has toured the college circuit for years.
