Seven’s new ‘TV-based’ game show The White Room has announced its regular panellists ahead of its premiere next week.
They are Dave Thornton, Felicity Ward (pictured, centre), George McEncroe and Lawrence Mooney (pictured, right).
The four will join hosts Julian Schiller and Tony Moclair.
Seven says of its four: “Dave Thornton is one of the country’s hottest young comedic talents and is currently co-hosting breakfast radio on Nova Brisbane; Felicity Ward is a Melbourne International Comedy Festival Most Outstanding Newcomer nominee and made a big impression on the past series of Thank God You’re Here; George McEncroe is a comedian, radio presenter and mother of four, who will bring warmth and humour to The White Room; while comedy favourite Lawrence Mooney is a familiar face on Aussie TV and has performed at just about every comedy festival around the globe.”
Early publicity material teases with the show’s TV trivia asking: “Think you can sing the theme song to Gilligan’s Island? Know your Aussie classics from Cop Shop to City Homicide? Worship your TV shows to the point where you can guess them through an interpretive dance?”
The show was originally in development seven years ago, but has since been revisited by the network. Should be worth checking out for TV buffs!
It premieres at 7:30pm Thursday February 11 on Seven.
