Actor Jeff Hephner Named as Host of Game Show Network's Trivia Game Show, ‘Switch’

New Half-Hour Daily Series Challenges Contestants to Test Their Trivia Knowledge For a Chance at $10,000

Game Show Network, the leader in game shows and competitive entertainment, has announced actor Jeff Hephner as host of its quick-moving trivia game show, SWITCH. The first season of the half-hour original series will premiere early 2023.

In SWITCH, five players begin the game by taking positions behind large numbers from 1 to 5. After a trivia question is asked, players with correct answers move towards the number 1 spot, and players with incorrect answers move towards the number 5 spot. The goal of the game is to finish the third round of questions in the number 1 position, thus winning the game and earning the right to play the bonus round for $10,000.

Recognized for starring opposite Jennifer Garner in the film “Peppermint” and his action-packed roles in “For All Mankind” and “Power Book II: Ghost”, Hephner is also known for roles in both “Chicago Med” and “Chicago Fire,” from the popular Chicago franchise and Hallmark Hall of Fame’s “Love Takes Flight”. Hephner can be seen next in Christopher Nolan's epic project "Oppenheimer".

SWITCH is based on a hit show in Belgium from DIGA Studios (“Hot Ones: The Game Show”) that is also being produced as local versions in Germany and the Netherlands and is in development in both France and Mexico. Based on a format developed by Panenka and licensed by Lineup Industries B.V., executive producers for DIGA Studios are Tony DiSanto and Nick Rigg. Rich Sirop also serves as executive producer.
