Y‘all remember how disappointed a lot of us were when LeVar Burton wasn’t selected to replace the late great Alex Trebek as the new permanent host of the iconic game show Jeopardy!. We were like: How dare they not choose the man who gave us 21 fabulous seasons of Reading Rainbow, got his foot chopped off for the culture as Kunta Kinte, and held it down on the USS Enterprise?

Well, sources have revealed to TMZ that Burton has another hosting gig for another classic game in the works, and the deal is, apparently, all but done.

From TMZ:

Sources with direct knowledge tell TMZ … LeVar and his team are close to locking in terms on a new job he’s been teeing up for a couple years now — namely, as executive producer and host of the new Trivial Pursuit game show … which is going to be aired on the CW.
