NEW YORK (AP) — Wayne Brady and the folks at "Let's Make a Deal" want to honor those fighting the coronavirus.
The CBS daytime game show that usually has a studio audience in zany costumes is asking front-line workers to submit a video audition for an upcoming special online edition of the show.
Producers got the idea after noticing that several contestants on the "Let's Make a Deal: At Home" edition of the show were front-line workers. They decided to dedicate a show to them.
"Let's Make a Deal" hopes to attract doctors, nurses, paramedics, delivery drivers, nursing home attendants and anyone providing care and services.
