Combining reality television with the competitive excitement of game shows, GSN announced the premiere of Hidden Agenda, a new domestic hidden-camera game show in which one member of a couple attempts to persuade his or her partner to complete a series of challenges—without letting on that the world is watching. Comic Debi Gutierrez, whose comedy career has thrived on the communication (or lack thereof) between couples, serves as host of the show and as the couples’ cheerleader. It premieres Thursday, January 14, at 8:30 PM (ET).
The show has partners secretly setting each other up to face a series of outrageous and comedic challenges. The challenges are specifically designed for each couple, so that the contestant asks his/her partner to do the exact things that he/she wouldn’t normally do—such as helping with particular household chores and other domestic duties. With each challenge the partner completes, the couple can win cash and prizes. Meanwhile, a troupe of recurring actors makes surprise appearances, amping up the fun and excitement.
