ABC gears up for ‘Wipeout’ pilot

New gameshow from creators of 'Deal'

ABC has given a pilot commitment to “Wipeout,” a new gameshow from “Deal or No Deal” producer Endemol USA.

Casting has begun on the potential skein, in which 50 contestants compete for the chance to win $50,000 while trying to make it through an enormous obstacle course. “Expect all of the fun of ‘Fear Factor’ with none of the gross,” reads an ad on ABC.com recruiting contestants for the show.

Endemol has had a long history with ABC, producing the long-running “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.” More recently, it produced the summer quizzer “Set for Life,” hosted by Jimmy Kimmel.

The Alphabet will make a decision on whether to greenlight “Wipeout” to series within the next few months.
