Sony Pictures Television‘s UK production joint venture Gogglebox created and is producing “Release The Hounds,” a one-hour format that mixes horror and game shows by sending three unsuspecting contestants into a forest at dusk as they seek out chests full of prize money, reports Deadline.
Little do they know, in order to win big, they’ll face the “scariest challenges ever endured on TV” – those include navigating a field of crucified scarecrows, descending beneath the floorboards in a deserted cabin, and reading bedtime stories in the nursery from hell. The ultimate challenge is to out-run a pack of hounds who are trained to guard the cash.
ITV2 has given the first commission to the show and will air the UK version as a special later this month, in time for Halloween. Executive producers are Gogglebox founders Adam Wood and Mat Steiner. The format will be presented to international buyers at Mipcom next week.
