LeVar Burton is going to be a Game Show Host after all

Despite not getting to replace Alec Trebek on “Jeopardy!”, it looks like Levar Burton will be a game show host after all…  And it also just happens to be another trivia show!

People have been wanting this since the former Star Trek star and host of children’s educational show, Reading Rainbow guest hosted on Jeopardy…

He was announced yesterday as the host of a new “Trivial Pursuit” show.  He’ll also be an executive producer.

LeVar said, quote, “Trivial Pursuit is one of the best-known brands in the gaming universe.  I am thrilled to have partnered with Hasbro and eOne to bring this beloved game to market as a premium show for television.”

It’s probably worth mentioning that it hasn’t been picked up by a network yet.

“Trivial Pursuit” has been a show before back in 1993 and 2008.  So it’ll be interesting to see how this one is updated.
