a Facebook post by veteran game show announcer Randy West about a possible What's My Line remake.
The post featured the glimpse of the new set in this entry's screenshot. The little flurry faded fast as no new version of WML ever surfaced. But now there's news of a couple tapings this month of another What's My Line remake. Fremantle seems to be involved. At least they're the "producers of America's Got Talent and The Price is Right" in the taping notice.
The Second City troupe will supply the panelists. The taping item promises "comedy, hijinks and hilarity." But don't they always promise such things? Intriguingly, the WML logo in the 2016 story seems to be the same as the logo on the 2014 set.
My conspiracy theory self is turning active here. Fremantle has called the lawyer hounds off the WML YouTube channel, at least for now. Is it because they're planning a What's My Line revival, and somebody figured out that the YouTube channel might be good publicity for the new version? Or am I just getting lost in hazy theorizing?
Probably the latter. We'll see if these two tapings ever lead to an actual show.
