Fremantle has announced a new all-star line-up for their award-winning game shows, The Price is Right and Let's Make a Deal.

Both shows outperform every other network's Daytime programming and have remained pinnacle entertainment brands within the No. 1 rated, 32 year-long reign of the CBS Daytime lineup.

Tapping into the company's current and undeniable game show prowess, Fremantle has elevated Evelyn Warfel to Executive Producer/Showrunner of The Price is Right, with John Quinn serving as the new Executive Producer/Showrunner on Let's Make a Deal.

"We are fortunate to have such creative and dedicated talent at the company," said Jennifer Mullin, CEO, Fremantle. "When looking to fill these roles, we didn't need to go far. Evelyn and John have been longtime valued members of our team and I can't wait to see how they will flourish in their new roles."

Network television's No. 1 rated Daytime series and the longest-running game show in TV history, The Price is Right, will see Evelyn Warfel serving as its new Executive Producer and Showrunner, making her the first woman to hold this position in the history of the series.

Most recently serving as the show's Co-Executive Producer, during Warfel's tenure on The Price is Right, the series has won three Daytime Emmy Awards for Outstanding Game Show, along with a total of seven nominations. Warfel has an extensive game show background having produced more than a dozen titles within this genre of entertainment, including previously serving as a Supervising Producer on Let's Make A Deal.

In addition to Warfel rising to the helm of The Price is Right, Adam Sandler has been named the show's new Co-Executive Producer. Sandler has spent the past 25 years with the series, serving as the show's Director for the past six, and in numerous producing roles prior to then. Having won two Daytime Emmy Awards for Outstanding Directing in a Game Show, Sandler will continue on in this role, in addition to now serving as the show's Co-EP.

Leading the charge on the Daytime Emmy-winning Let's Make a Deal will be veteran game show producer John Quinn serving as Executive Producer and Showrunner. Quinn has been in the Fremantle family for the past six years, originally coming on board as an Executive Producer on Celebrity Name Game, which saw two Daytime Emmy wins for host Craig Ferguson, along with a nomination in the Outstanding Game Show category. He also served as an Executive Producer on Match Game, and most recently has been leading the charge in primetime as both an Executive Producer and Showrunner on the return of the classic game show, Press Your Luck, on ABC.

Quinn will be supported by longtime Let's Make a Deal Co-EPs, Chris Ahearn and Graham Shaw, along with Jennifer Langheld who recently joined the team as Co-EP.

Both The Price is Right and Let's Make a Deal are produced by Fremantle and will be premiering their 48th and 11th seasons respectively this fall on CBS.

The Price is Right is broadcast weekdays (11:00 AM-12:00 PM, ET/10:00-11:00 AM, PT), with Let's Make a Deal also airing on weekdays (check local listings).
