Stephen and Ayesha Curry are taking date night to a whole new level. The couple teamed up to co-host and executive produce a game show for HBO Max titled About Last Night, which features celebrity couples competing against each other in trivia and other challenges to win money for their charities. Stephen and Ayesha spoke with People about their new venture together.
"We'd actually always wanted to do something together and wanted something around the premise of a date night," Ayesha said. "We don't get to do a lot of them, but we love going on them. And so we said, 'Hey, this is a great excuse to get some work done and also have some date nights.' It's really that simple."
Stephen also spoke about the couples on the show, "We tried to make it something we'd do normally anyway. I feel like that's how you spend your time, hanging out with some cool couples like we have on the show. And game nights or any type of couple competition or something that brings personality and fun out of it, that was the exciting part about what it could be."
Some of those couples include Steph’s Golden State Warriors teammates Draymond Green and his wife Hazel Renee and Damion Lee and wife Sydel Curry-Lee, who is also Steph’s younger sister. Other celebrity couples are Niecy Nash and her wife Jessica Betts, Terry Crews and his wife Rebecca, and more.
Each episode will have three celebrity couples join Steph and Ayesha in a competition to determine who knows their partner the best. Some of the questions are playful while others are NSFW.
The NBA star gushed about working with his wife and how much fun it is to have a show like this.
"I've seen her host before, when you see it in person, we can just be ourselves and have good chemistry out there," he said. "But then just how much fun the couples say they had afterward because it's kind of nerve-wracking. You don't know what the questions are. You don't know where it can go. You want to present your best self there at end of the day, just being yourself."
During their appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Ayesha revealed that their new game show is a spin on ‘70s game show TattleTales. “It’s just so light-hearted and fun. Gives you a little insight into relationships that you wonder about but in a fun way. With the climate right now, in the world, we’re living in it’s nice to just have something where you can just sit down and have a good laugh.”
About Last Night premieres Feb. 10 on HBO Max.
