Quizzer amps up the art of ejections
ABC has picked up Endemol format “101 Ways to Leave a Game Show” for its summer schedule.“Ways” is a quizshow with a twist worthy of another Endemol/ABC summer entry, “Wipeout”: Losing contestants are literally ejected from the program in inventive ways ranging from being shot out of a cannon to being tied to a one-ton anchor and dropped to the ocean floor. “Developed in partnership with our U.K. colleagues, ‘101 Ways to Leave a Game Show’ is unlike any other show we’ve done before,” said Endemol North America chairman David Goldberg. Matt Kunitz (“Wipeout”) is exec producer.
