SYFY GREENLIGHTS NEW SERIES EXIT, BASED ON HIT JAPANESE SERIES
SIX-EPISODE THRILLING COMPETITION SERIES TO PREMIERE JUNE 4 AT 10PM
NEW YORK – April 3, 2013 – Building off the success of its hit series Face Off and Total Blackout, Syfy today announced an expansion of its reality competition programming with the greenlighting of Exit. Based on the Nippon Television Network’s hit Japanese series Dero!, Exit is an all-new six episode series hosted by Curt Doussett (America’s Lost Treasures, Hazard Pay) set to premiere June 4 at 10PM ET/PT.
In each nail-biting episode, four teams of two contestants will battle to escape a series of four mind-bending and seemingly diabolical rooms, each more challenging than the last. The winning team must beat the clock while solving rapid-fire brain games and navigating a bevy of terrifyingly entertaining puzzles in order to be the only team to truly exit and win the $10,000 prize.
Said Mark Stern, President of Original Content, Syfy, “Exit is a heart-pounding adrenalin rush of a competition series that truly embraces imagination, forcing its eager contestants to experience twisted and visual brain puzzles while navigating booby-traps, receding floors, collapsing walls, bottomless sand pits and much more.”
Exit is produced by Smart Dog Media in association with Zig Zag Productions. Craig Plestis (Minute to Win It, America’s Got Talent), Michael Binkow (1 vs. 100, Who Wants to Be A Millionaire), Danny Fenton (Scam City, Cheryl Cole: Where Did It All Go Right… and Wrong) and Scott St. John (Total Blackout, America’s Got Talent) serve as Executive Producers.
Exit joins Syfy’s robust roster of popular reality series such as Face Off, Ghost Hunters, Haunted Collector, Total Blackout, Paranormal Witness, Ghost Mine, and Syfy’s newest series Deep South Paranormal which will premiere Wednesday, April 10 at 10PM.
