ABC has given a series order to ‘Big Fan,’ a half-hour weekly comedic game show based on a ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ segment titled ‘Who Knows…?’ and hosted by Andy Richter. ‘Who Knows…?’ is a celebrity vs. super-fan game which became a viral video success when pop star Katy Perry went up against one of her biggest fans in this hilarious challenge. Each episode of the half-hour, studio-based game show will feature one celebrity and three of his or her biggest super fans. The super fans will go head-to-head to see who knows more about the episode’s featured celebrity. The succeeding super fan will move on to the final round in an ultimate showdown, celebrity vs. super fan, to see who knows most about the celebrity. If the super fan wins, their prize is a priceless experience with the celebrity they admire most.
‘This show is a lot of fun,’ said Jimmy Kimmel. He added, ‘Andy Richter is a great host, and I can’t think of a better way to terrify celebrities.’
