Will you answer "The Phone"?
Justin Timberlake is throwing his hat into the game show ring! The Phone is his newest venture and will be shown on MTV
Each week, the lives of four unwitting strangers are interrupted and changed forever by a phone call where a mysterious voice invites them to participate in the game. If they choose yes by pressing “one” on their cell phones, the now new contestants begin to trigger dangerous events that propel them into their adventure and the chance to win up to $50,000.
The mysterious voice pairs the contestants up into two teams and instructs them to follow a movie-like drama that leads them through a series of mental and physical challenges from hanging off the edge of Seattle’s Space Needle to racing into a burning building to save a man’s life. The player’s loyalty, courage and morality are tested and their true nature is exposed when a surprise and shocking twist is revealed at the end of the game.
Sounds a little (ok a LOT) like the movie Eagel Eye. A mysterious phone call, pairing you up with someone, as it sends you on an adventure and seemingly dangerous situations.
“The Phone” premieres on April 21st at 10pm ET/PT.
