LOS ANGELES NBC is launching a celebrity game show with Jane Lynch as host.
The network said Friday that it ordered eight episodes of "Hollywood Game Night" from producer-actor Sean Hayes.
The network says the former "Will & Grace" actor is basing the show on his own "game nights." NBC says the new series will mix celebrities with regular folks who have the chance to compete for money.
Lynch already stars in Fox's "Glee," and she's also set to make her Broadway debut in May in a revival of "Annie."
NBC says "Hollywood Game Night" is planned for late summer but no air date has been set.
