NBC is bringing back the beloved game show "Password," and Keke Palmer is set to host!
NBC announced the news of the revival on Tuesday. The game showis en route for a summer premiere and an eight-episode contract with Jimmy Fallon serving as the executive producer.
"Password" originally aired on CBS from 1961-1967 before being picked up by ABC from 1971-1975. NBC later aired two revivals of the show, "Password Plus" (1979-1982) and "Super Password" (1984-1989). CBS once again reprised the show with "Million Dollar Password," airing from 2008-2009.
