It looks like the Emmys won't be the only stage where the casts of Abbott Elementary and Hacks will meet.
Both series are comedy frontrunners at the upcoming Emmy Awards, but they're also poised for a showdown on Celebrity Family Feud. In the game show's Season 8 premiere, cast members from the hit comedies will compete for a charity of their choice by playing through the game's iconic face-off and fast money rounds.
Team Abbott Elementary consists of Quinta Brunson, Lisa Ann Walter, Sheryl Lee Ralph, Tyler James Williams, and Ms. Joyce Abbott, Brunson's sixth grade teacher. The team will play for DonorsChoose, a nonprofit organization through which people can donate directly to public school classrooms.
On Team Hacks, Jean Smart, Christopher McDonald, Poppy Liu, Mark Indelicato, and Rose Abdoo will compete to benefit Feeding America. The nonprofit is a nationwide network of food banks, pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, and other community agencies that work to feed millions of Americans.
During the second half of the Season 8 premiere, actor Kal Penn and his team will go up against actress Erika Christensen for the organizations Baby2Baby and The Cameron Heyward Foundation, respectively.
Host Steve Harvey returns as host of Celebrity Family Feud Season 8, which premieres July 10 at 8:00 PM ET on ABC.
