Without Prejudice......a Different Kind of Game Show!

From the "geniuses" at GSN.

Production has begun on WITHOUT PREJUDICE?, GSN’s newest and most controversial game series, premiering Tuesday, July 17, (9:00 – 10:00 PM, ET) it was announced today by Jamie Roberts, Senior Vice President of Programming for GSN.

“We are so excited about this show and the climate for something this politically charged couldn’t be more perfect,” said Roberts. “’Without Prejudice?’ is truly a ground breaking show - a rare US TV first. It is inspired, modern entertainment that dares to frame electric debates of hot button issues such as sexism, immigration, religion and gun control into a reality game structure.”

Hosted by Dr. Robi Ludwig, renowned psychotherapist and award-winning journalist, this thought-provoking series is about five contestants opening their lives for examination by five ordinary strangers who will decide which of the contestants, in their opinion, deserves to receive a one-time prize of $25,000. The panel and viewers at home will find out more about each of the contestants as the show goes on and as they do, the panel will eliminate contestants.

Dr. Ludwig’s academic credentials include a doctorate in psychology (Psy.D) from the Southern California University for Professional Studies. She holds a post master’s certificate in advanced clinical work from Hunter College, a master’s degree in social work from the University of Pennsylvania and a bachelor’s degree in mass communications from Cedar Crest College. Her practical experience as a psychotherapist began in 1988 when she worked as a counselor for patients with severe psychiatric disorders. Ludwig has treated all forms of mental illness, substance abuse, grieving, sexual identity issues, job stress, emotional and sexual abuse problems as well as common social and parenting issues in both private practice and in a clinical setting.

WITHOUT PREJUDICE? made its original debut in the UK to critical acclaim and won an International Emmy Award for Outstanding Achievement in Non-scripted Popular Arts Programming its first season. It has aired in numerous countries, including Chile and Holland. Produced by 12 Yard Productions, David Young and Andrew Culpin serve as executive producers and Andrew Musson as supervising producer.
