Anthony Anderson, star of "Black-ish," is the host.
The show's premise is simple: a person with an unusual skill or occupation or accomplishment joins two imposters. The three celebrities (Leakes, White and a third panelist) then question each of them to figure out who is lying and who is the real deal.
Back in the 1950s and 1960s, the indefatigable 93-year-old White was a regular panelist when the show aired on CBS, appearing at least 39 times between 1958 and 1963, according to imdb.com. She married a fellow "To Tell the Truth" panelist and "Password" game show host Allen Ludden in 1963.
Since the first version aired from 1956 to 1968 followed by nine more years in syndication, networks have tried to revive it three separate times but the reboots have never been as successful as the original.
In this 1959 segment sponsored by Marlboro, White appears at the four-minute point.
And here is one of the short-lived revival efforts in 1990 with White while she was on "The Golden Girls."
