Coming off the success of this summer’s D&D Live featuring celebrities including Jack Black, Tiffany Haddish, and Patton Oswalt, G4 and Wizards of the Coast continue their partnership for a weekly D&D series focusing on improvised comedy, entertainment, and accessible gameplay. That series is Invitation To Party, a brand new series featuring a cast of veteran players from around the entertainment world.
Dungeons & Dragons Presents: Invitation to Party premieres Monday, November 22 at 6:30 pm PT on the G4 channel. Invitation to Party, television’s first program dedicated to tabletop gaming, will bring together a group of comedians and content creators who form an intrepid party of adventurers as they roll the dice for riches, glory, and survival. Viewers who watch during the show’s livestream on Twitch and YouTube will also have a hand in the action as they’ll be able to directly affect gameplay via real-time voting. Outrageous prompts, story beats, NPC characters, and obstacles will be imagined and sourced by our viewers at home (and in-studio), for the DM and Players to execute.
