THE “PASSWORD” IS… AN ICONIC GAME COMING TO NBC THIS SUMMER

Jimmy Fallon, All-Star Guests and Contestants Face Off as Emmy Award Winner Keke Palmer Named Host

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. – April 12, 2022 – One of the most iconic game shows in television history, “Password” is coming to NBC prime time this summer. The series, which has found a new generation of fans in recent years on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” will be hosted by Emmy-winning actress Keke Palmer and star of Jordan Peele’s upcoming film, “Nope.”

Palmer will command the “Password” podium as contestants from all walks of life team up with Jimmy Fallon and other celebrities to go head-to-head in the ultimate word game. Fallon will star in each of the eight hour-long episodes as the celebrity/contestant duos compete for cash prizes by guessing a secret password using one-word clues.

The first episode will be dedicated to Betty White. Performing regularly on ‘Late Night with Jimmy Fallon’, the iconic TV star has long been considered ‘Password’s greatest player. The season will then culminate with a special episode featuring a lineup of stars and celebrities playing for charity.

The pioneering series established itself as the original celebrity pun when it launched in 1961 and has featured hundreds of celebrity guests and generated multiple spin-offs over six decades. NBC revived the series in 1979 and 1984 before becoming a hit play on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” and “The Tonight Show.”

It was recently announced that Fallon’s other hit series, “That’s My Jam,” has been renewed for a second season on NBC.

“Password” is produced by Fremantle in association with Universal Television Alternative Studio and Electric Hot Dog. Jimmy Fallon, Jim Juvonen and Jennifer Mullin will serve as executive producers, along with John Quinn who will also serve as showrunner.
