Pat Sajak

Pat Sajak's final episode as host of Wheel of Fortune is only just airing on Friday night, but that doesn't mean the long-running host has wasted any time moving on to new projects. In fact, he's already got a new gig locked and loaded.

Sajak will reunite with his friend Joe Moore, KHON-TV Hawai’i newscaster and actor, in a new production of Prescription: Murder, a 1962 play written by William Link and Richard Levinson that served as the basis for the TV show Colombo. Sajak's iteration of the play, which will run from July 31, 2025 to Aug. 10, 2025, will also serve as a fundraiser for the Hawaii Theater.

According to NBC News, Sajak will play "brilliant psychiatrist Roy Flemming, who hatches a plot with a perfect alibi to murder his neurotic and possessive wife." Moore will play Lt. Columbo, “the seemingly bumbling detective who engages the psychiatrist in a cat-and-mouse battle of wits right up to the play’s surprising climax.”

Robert Duval is slated to direct the production, and Sajak and Moore will be joined by Bryce MooreTherese Olival, Amy K. Sullivan and Aiko Chinen.
