GSN describes Baggage On The Road as a traveling version of its 2010-11 series Baggage. The network today announced a 20-episode order of Baggage On The Road, a half-hour comedic dating game show, with Baggage host Jerry Springer to return for the iteration. Contestants choose from three potential partners, all of whom come with their own quirky, annoying and sometimes truly shocking physical and emotional “baggage” that could eliminate them from the competition. With Springer at the helm, contestants will be required to reveal the various intimate secrets and hidden flaws – housed inside literal suitcases – that typically aren’t revealed on a first date. Eventually, only one suitor will win a date with the contestant, as long as that person can also accept the contestant’s baggage in a final role-reversal round. It will travel to four U.S. cities, beginning with Austin and Baton Rouge in October for a 2015 premiere. Baggage On The Road is produced for GSN by Wilshire Studios. Lisa Tucker serves as exec producer.
