Game Show Network has slated the wordplay game Tug of Words from the producing team behind Who Wants to be a Millionaire, with TV and sports personality Ahmad Rashad attached to host.

Expected to premiere this fall, the half-hour series sees two teams compete to answer word clue questions correctly and pull the flag on the “tug of war rope”to their side.

The team with the flag on their side after three rounds wins the game, qualifying them for the bonus round where they have the opportunity to compete for $10,000.

Tug of Words is produced by Embassy Row, with Michael Davies serving as executive producer. Susan Warner also serves as executive producer.

Rashad (pictured) covered NFL and NBA televised contests both as a studio anchor and as a game reporter for NBC and ABC. He also hosted and executive produced NBA Inside Stuff. In 2010, he began hosting One on One with Ahmad Rashad, an NBA TV interview series.

He also hosted the video-clip show Real TV in 2000, the reality show Celebrity MoleĀ and the game show Caesars Challenge along with co-host Dan Doherty
