Cable network TBS previously filmed an unbroadcast pilot for the American series, with stand-up comic Sherrod Small as one of two team captains.
Small told a fan on Twitter that he is unaware of whether TBS plans to pick up the pilot, but claimed that other networks have since expressed an interest in the project.
"Last I heard NBC and CNN are really interested too, so we will see," he wrote. "I'm ready to start taping!"
US comedian Sam Seder took the role of host in the pilot, with Michael Ian Black as Small's rival team captain.
The UK version of the panel show, with Paul Merton and Ian Hislop as team captains, has been aired by the BBC since it launched in 1990.
Angus Deayton originally served as host, but was fired from the show in 2002 and replaced by a rotating lineup of guest presenters.
