Taped in Washington D.C., the show will air during Jeopardy! Power Players Week, featuring an impressive roster of influential journalists, commentators, and newsmakers, such as CNN anchor Anderson Cooper, professor and TV host Melissa Harris-Perry, and best-selling author Jonathan Franzen. Louis C.K. will compete against Kate Bolduan, co-host of CNN’s At This Hour, and opinion writer Jonathan Capehart of The Washington Post. Players compete for a charity of their choice and will receive a guaranteed $10,000 for their cause, with the winning contestant earning a minimum of $50,000 for his or her charity.
