About Opposite Worlds
In Opposite Worlds, 14 people from all walks of life go head-to-head in opposing teams that live in a house separated into two distinctly different worlds: one future and one past, each with its own unique advantages and disadvantages. Adding to the drama is a glass wall dividing the house into the two environments, allowing the teams to watch, envy and dread each other’s every move. Viewers can contribute to the chatter about Opposite Worlds – and affect each weekly challenge – by following the handle @syfyoppworlds and using the hashtag #oppositeworlds on Twitter.
In addition, Syfy.com will serve as an interactivity hub for the show, offering up opportunities to vote on various elements of the competition (such as rewards and punishments for the most popular and least popular players, and to give players special abilities to heavily impact the game). The outcomes of this viewer interactivity will be incorporated into the show each week, giving viewers the opportunity to affect the outcome of each weekly challenge and in turn, who eventually emerges as victor.
