Fantastic tabletop role-playing game arrives on TV November 22
Following the success of this summer’s D&D Live starring such celebrities as Jack Black, Tiffany Haddish and Patton Oswalt, G4 and Wizards of the Coast continue their partnership for a weekly D&D series focused on improvised comedy, entertainment and gameplay accessible. For the first time, viewers will be able to see the comedy of friends rolling the dice together and the drama of a natural 20 cast for a critical hit!
Dungeons & Dragons Gifts: Invitation to the party premieres Monday, November 22 at 6:30 p.m. Pacific on channel G4.
Party invitation, the first television program dedicated to board games, will bring together a group of comedians and content creators who form a group of intrepid adventurers as they roll the dice for wealth, glory and survival. Viewers who watch during the show’s live stream on Twitch and YouTube will also get in on the action as they can directly affect gameplay via real-time voting. Outrageous prompts, story beats, NPC characters and obstacles will be imagined and researched by our viewers at home (and in the studio), for the DM and gamers to perform.
