*#Jeopardy! producer #MikeRichards and former “Big Bang Theory” star #MayimBialik have been named the hosts of the long-running game show.
Richards will be the full-time host of the weekday syndicated version of the show, while Bialik will host special primetime editions.
Sony Pictures Television made the announcement in a press release Wednesday.
“Richards will kick off Season 38 as the full-time host of Jeopardy!’s long-running daily syndicated program,” the company said. “Bialik joins as the host of Jeopardy!’s primetime and spinoff series, including the upcoming all-new Jeopardy! National College Championship set to air on ABC next year, as the studio looks to extend the Jeopardy! franchise to new platforms.”
“We took this decision incredibly seriously. A tremendous amount of work and deliberation has gone into it, perhaps more than has ever gone into the selection of hosts for a show – deservedly so because it’s ‘Jeopardy!’ and we are following the incomparable Alex Trebek,” Ravi Ahuja, Chairman of Sony Pictures added.
