The family-friendly competition series releases trailer and celebrity guest judge lineup


CULVER CITY, California—October 3, 2022—Today, Amazon Freevee revealed the official trailer and premiere date for the Freevee Original series Play-Doh Squished. The lively competition show is hosted by Sarah Hyland. Based on the hit holiday special released last year, and featuring updates reflecting the shift from special to series, the first episode premieres exclusively on Freevee November 11 in the U.S. and UK, with new episodes available on the service every Friday thereafter until February 24, 2023.

Sarah Hyland will be joined each week by resident Play-Doh expert Jason Loik as well as two standing judges, painter Alexandra Nechita and sculptor Gil Grimmett. An all-star lineup of celebrity guest judges adds to the fun, including Wells Adams, Stephen “tWitch” Boss, Julie Bowen, D’Arcy Carden, “Young Dylan” Gilmer, Tony Hale, Chloe Kim, Marshawn Lynch, Alyssa Milano, Madison Pettis, Jay Pharoah, Jaime Pressly, Francia Raisa, Rob Riggle, and Kristen Schaal. Each episode will feature a new theme to inspire teams as they build their Play-Doh creations. From creating monsters, to designing out-of-this-world terrains, teams will be challenged to use Play-Doh tools and compound in a variety of new ways.

From Amazon Studios, Entertainment One (eOne), and Hasbro, Play-Doh Squished is the ultimate Play-Doh competition. Three teams of adults and kids go toe-to-toe in exciting challenges—all designed to test their artistry, speed, and skill. First, they’ll face a wild “mini-challenge,” followed by a race through the colorful arena, all leading to the final test of their imaginations—creating an epic Play-Doh world. One team will become our Play-Doh champs, and the others will get squished!

In a first for Freevee, viewers will have the opportunity to play along from home with the Squished Creative Challenge Set from Hasbro. Inspired by the series, each set includes 30 creative challenge cards, a special “squisher” tool, and a 32-ounce can of Play-Doh—the same can featured on the show. The Squished Creative Challenge set is available exclusively for purchase on
