Fox greenlights reality pilot ‘Panic Attack’

Show from 'Hell's Kitchen' producers A. Smith and Co.

Fox has scared up the reality pilot “Panic Attack,” from “Hell’s Kitchen” producers A. Smith and Co.

“Panic” centers on a group of five participants who suffer from the same phobias. A team of therapists will help them face those fears.

Through a series of challenges, the quintet will learn new ways to deal with those paralyzing fears — leading to one final, dramatic challenge. Friends and family will be brought in to watch their loved ones tackle that final test.

“Panic Attack” will be hosted by U.K.-based married psychotherapists and motivational coaches Nik and Eva Speakman.

The eccentric couple have starred in the British TV series “A Life Coach Less Ordinary,” and wrote the book “Your Life Can Be Fantastic Too.” The Speakmans have worked with patients suffering from a wide variety of issues, including food addiction, confidence problems and depression.

A. Smith’s Arthur Smith and Kent Weed are exec producers.
