ABOUT TUG OF WORDS

From the producing team behind “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire,” TUG OF WORDS is a fast-paced game where two teams compete to answer word clue questions correctly and pull the flag on the “tug of war rope” to their side. In round one, each answer involves changing a single letter in the word that appears on the board. For example, with ‘TUG’ on the board, the answer to the clue ‘a label inside a garment’ is ‘TAG,’ and with ‘TAG’ then on the board, the answer to the clue ‘hopefully the upstairs neighbors aren’t learning this dance’ is ‘TAP.’ With each round, an additional letter is added creating four and five letter words to solve. The team with the flag on their side after three rounds wins the game, qualifying them for the bonus round where they have opportunity to compete for $10,000.

Dylan Lane is best known to viewers for hosting Game Show Network’s first iteration of CHAIN REACTION from 2006-2007.

Presently, Lane is a married father of two and works as a fleet engineer for GE in New York.

“CHAIN REACTION is one of the most engaging game show formats of all time because it is so fun to play along with,” said executive producer Mike Richards, also the showrunner of the long running franchises ”Jeopardy’ and “Wheel of Fortune.” “I look forward to working with Game Show Network to create this new edition of a fan favorite.”

CHAIN REACTION was most recently seen on Game Show Network from 2015-2016 with Mike Catherwood as host.

The new iteration of CHAIN REACTION is produced by Game Show Enterprises, LLC for Game Show Network. Mike Richards (“Jeopardy,” “Wheel of Fortune,”) serves as executive producer. A three-time Daytime Emmy Award winner and 17-time nominee, Richards previously served as executive producer of “The Price Is Right” and “Let’s Make a Deal,” “Who Wants To Be A Millionaire” and has produced over 4,000 hours of game show programming.
