ABC orders winter ‘Wipeout’

Endemol expands global hit TV show

ABC is turning “Wipeout” into a winter wonderland.

The Alphabet net has ordered eight more episodes of “Wipeout” to air this January complete with a chilly theme.

ABC had already picked up 16 episodes of “Wipeout” for next summer; that brings the show’s fourth season (which will be split into winter and summer segs) total to 24.

“‘Wipeout’ is one of Endemol’s most successful global hits and it’s exciting to see the brand expanding,” said Endemol North America chairman David Goldberg.

For the winter episodes, the “Wipeout” course will be made over with ice and snow, while contestants will take part in new stunts like “Spanker Sleds,” “Wipeout Ski Lift” and the “Polar Bear Run.”

Matt Kunitz and Scott Larsen are exec producers on “Wipeout,” while John Anderson and John Henson host. Jill Wagner is co-host.

Endemol USA also produces “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” for ABC.

Separately, ABC also gave a firm series order to “Take the Money and Run,” a new reality skein from “The Amazing Race’s” Bruckheimer TV and Bertram Van Munster.

Profiles TV and Horizon Alternative TV is also behind the show, which comes from exec producers Van Munster, Jerry Bruckheimer, Jonathan Littman, Elise Doganieri and Phillip Morrow.
