Los Angeles-based T Group Productions has partnered with comedian Wanda Sykes, Page Hurwitz and their studio Push It Productions to produce the competition format Throw Mama from the Game Show for the U.S. television market.

Throw Mama from the Game Show is a one-hour elimination game show that pits teams consisting of a mother and her millennial children against one another to beat the competition. At the same time, contestants will have to conquer challenges that test their relationships, mental capacities and physical finesse.

Only one team will walk away unscathed and receive a cash prize to help smooth over any bruised familial feelings.

The series will be executive produced by T Group’s Jenny Daly and Rob  Lobl, alongside Wanda Sykes (pictured) and Page Hurwitz for Push It Productions.

T Group Productions, creators of Ozzy and Jack’s World Detour, and Push It Productions (Last Comic StandingTalk Show the Game Show) will be pitching Throw Mama from the Game Show to broadcast and premium outlets this week at the MIPTV market in Cannes.
