Game Show Network’s hit show America Says is going into syndication nationwide, courtesy of a deal with Sony Pictures Television (SPT).

Hosted by John Michael Higgins (pictured),  the studio game show pits two teams of friends and family against one another to guess America’s responses by filling in the blanks to survey questions on a vast range of topics.

The winning team with the most money banked after three rounds will advance to a bonus round for the chance to win up to US$15,000.

Fox, Sinclair, CBS, Cox Media, Tegna, Nexstar, Mission, Gray and Lockwood have all agreed to carry the game show on their stations when it debuts this fall.

The partnership brings the 30-minute survey-matching game show into 85% of the U.S.

America Says is based on a format by Keller/Noll. John Quinn serves as executive producer. Tara Long and Mark Herwick of Entertainment One (eOne) and Dave Noll and Cleve Keller of Keller/Noll serve as executive producers.
