Emmy award winner Merv Griffin, creator of the two most successful prime-time series in the history of television, introduces simple but dramatic features to a game of universal appeal in his newest series for syndication.

Merv Griffin's Crosswords is a fast-paced, new generation “q & a” game show in the great tradition of the genre from the legendary master of the game.

Merv Griffin's Crosswords plays out in classic style – Beginning Game, Mid-Game, End-Game and Bonus Round. Players answer questions to solve a crossword and win. A bonus round heightens audience anticipation, and a returning champion builds the excitement from one episode to the next.
