I've Got a Secret is a game show featuring celebrities attempting to guess the secrets of guests. The show is a spinoff of What's My Line?

The contestant introduced whispers his/her secret to the moderator and it is shown to the studio and home audiences. Each panelist now has one minute to ask questions regarding the secret. The contestant wins $20 for each panelist that cannot guess the secret. The final segment involves a celebrity guest.

This edition ran until 1966. A syndicated edition with Steve Allen as host cropped up in 1972 and ran one season. Bill Cullen hosted a 1976 summer-run edition for CBS. Stephanie Miller hosted a 2001 edition for the cable channel Oxygen, and Bill Dwyer hosted another revival for GSN in 2006.

Goodson-Todman Productions produced the series, which is now distributed by Fremantle North America due to that company's ownership of the Goodson-Todman catalogue.
