LAS VEGAS, Sept. 3 (UPI) -- The latest incarnation of the television game show "Let's Make a Deal" with Wayne Brady as host is to start taping in Las Vegas this month, CBS said.

The one-hour daytime show is to begin production Sept. 15 at The Tropicana Las Vegas. It is to premiere Oct. 5, the network said.

The series is described as "a new take on the classic game show where audience members dress in outlandish costumes to win cash and prizes by making deals with the host."

Free tickets for the show are available at http://www.cbs.com/daytime/lets_make_a_deal/ with details about tape dates also available on the Web site.

The original "Let's Make a Deal" was a television game show staple presided over by Monty Hall from 1963-1977. While later versions aired in syndication and prime time, the game show is best remembered for the years Hall was host. He will serve as a creative consultant on the remake, CBS said.
