Sony Pictures Television has premiered a trailer for “The Gong Show,” the revival of the iconic variety series which gets a twist in its newest incarnation – it’s hosted by comedian Mike Meyers in character as British host ‘Tommy Maitland’.
Neither the trailer or official press releases for the show make any mention of Meyers. Actor/comedian Will Arnett executive produces the series which celebrates unusually talented and unique amateur performers on a primetime stage.
A revolving panel of judges featuring Hollywood stars praise, critique and gong contestants. The trailer confirms such judges as Ed Helms, Elizabeth Banks and Ken Jeong in the new episodes.
“The Gong Show” premieres June 22nd on ABC.
