Fox schedules Becki Newton comedy 'Goodwin Games'
Fox’s Goodwin Games is finally getting a premiere date. The Becki Newton comedy from the How I Met Your Mother team will air this summer. Goodwin Games will debut on Monday, May 20 and run for seven weeks.
The show is about a trio of estranged sibling who return home after their father’s death and discover they will only inherit his millions by playing an elaborate game of Trivial Pursuit that’s been customized with questions about their lives. Co-starring Scott Foley, Newton and T.J. Miller, the show is written by Carter Bays and Craig Thomas. Goodwin Games was originally given a 13-episode order, but Fox shut down the production after seven episodes.
