The live tour is produced by Right Angle Entertainment alongside Sony Pictures Television and UTA.

“This partnership with Right Angle presents an opportunity to expand our reach to give more people a live experience as close to being on the televised show as you can get without actually being in the studio,” Suzanne Prete, executive VP of game shows for Sony Pictures Television said in a statement.

She continued, “We look forward to providing this incredible local immersive experience to people who might not otherwise make it out to Los Angeles to be on the set with Pat [Sajak] and Vanna [White].”

“Wheel of Fortune” began airing in 1975 and is currently in its 39th season, hosted by Pat Sajak with Vanna White as his trusty letter-turner. The spinoff “Celebrity Wheel of Fortune” started airing on ABC last year.
