Show to debut in the fall
Spike has greenlit a nine-episode run of “MANswers,” described as a gameshow about barstool curiosities.
Show will “answer all of the burning questions men have been dying to ask but never found socially acceptable,” according to the net.
Series will use everything from interviews with experts to re-enactments to answer a list of offbeat and candid questions that are likely to be bandied about in a bar late at night. Among the topics of discussion: how long can a man survive on beer alone, and “what is the best organ to eat if you’re a cannibal.”
“MANswers” is produced by Super Delicious and Fujisankei Communications. Adam Cohen, Cara Tapper, Joanna Vernetti, Michael J. Miller and Akifumi Takuma are exec producers.
Show, which will pit contestants against one another, will debut in fall.
Spike has a number of high-profile series set to bow in the coming months, most notably drama “The Kill Pit,” starring John Leguizamo; show is in production in Pittsburgh and bows in July.
It also has been making a push in the nonscripted arena with reality skeins like “Pros vs. Joes.”
