Plot Synopsis

Executive produced and hosted by Yvette Nicole Brown -- and featuring Rhys Darby as her robot sidekick, C.L.I.V.E. -- THE BIG FIB is a game show, based on the "Pants on Fire" podcast, that tests whether kids can spot a liar. In each episode, a kid starts by playing a warm-up round where a silly liar and an authentic expert share fabulous fibs and fun facts. This round is played for laughs as well as always having a nugget of real information about the topic be it ice cream, tree climbing or toy design. Next, the kid contestant plays the main round where they question an expert who's paired with a really good liar on the same topic. It's up to the kid to find the fibber. There are visual clues, props, a hot seat round of rapid-fire questions and various topics, including jellyfish, venom and killer plants. The show culminates with the expert and liar standing under the Fib Foam machine to await their fate. If the kid chooses correctly, the liar gets foamed. THE BIG FIB debuted on Friday, May 22, 2020 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT, as Disney+ released the first 15 episodes.
Five months later -- on Friday, October 23, 2020 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT -- Disney+ released the last 15 episodes of THE BIG FIB's 30-episode first season, with host Yvette Nicole Brown.
