Ryan Reynolds Teaming Up With ABC For Game Show
April 8, 2019
Ryan Reynolds is behind “Don’t,” a new original game show that has been picked up by ABC for multiple episodes. Described as a “comedic physical game show” in which families of four are asked to perform various challenges. The family members must work together on mental and physical tasks with just one rule: “Don’t” do something. They might be told to “don’t slip,” “don’t laugh,” “don’t scream,” “don’t forget,” or another “don’t” challenge.
Each episode will focus on one family as they go through the “Don’t” tests. If they succeed, they’ll win a cash prize. But if the family fails a challenge, one of them will be eliminated. When just one contestant is left, the last remaining family member must compete on their own. Whatever money they’ve earned, the family keeps.
“All my life, the word ‘don’t’ has tortured me,” Reynolds said. “From ‘don’t curse’ to ‘don’t play ball in the house’ to ‘don’t eat the crab salad you left in the sun for three days.’ I cannot wait for my personal trauma to become the next great ABC family show.”
