New Henson Puppets Go Wild on GSN Game Show

LOS ANGELES — Puppets will take a walk on the wild side as part of a new late-night game show.

‘Late Night Liars,’ debuting next month on GSN, features a panel of what the channel calls saucy and uncensored “celebrity puppets.” Actor-comedian Larry Miller is the host.

The puppets are designed by Henson Alternative, a label of the Jim Henson Co. that focuses on projects aimed at adults – meaning no Muppets or other beloved Henson creations will be on the game show.

Among the cocktail-swilling puppet characters to be included: Cashmere Ramada, described as a famous “celebutante and tabloid target,” and Shelley Oceans, a brash comedian. Contestants vie for cash prizes by deciding whether the puppets are telling true or false stories.

“I’ve always loved the show business-type game shows, like ‘Match Game,’ ‘Hollywood Squares,’ where they have folks from show business and everyone’s probably drunk,” quipped Miller (‘10 Things I Hate About You,’ ‘Best in Show’).

‘Late Night Liars’ begins 11 p.m. EDT Thursday, June 10, on the GSN channel.
