Don’t Trailer & Premiere Date Set for Adam Scott-Hosted Game Show
ABC has released the Don’t trailer for the upcoming physical game show hosted by Adam Scott (Big Little Lies, Parks and Recreation) and executive produced by Ryan Reynolds. Set to launch on ABC on June 11, you can check out the trailer below (via Deadline)!
In the show, contestants have the opportunity to team with their family and friends for the chance to win a cash prize of up to $100,000 by tackling tasks each with the simple rule of “Don’t.” In each episode of the comedic physical game show, members of the four-person team will strive to accomplish various challenges — such as “Don’t laugh,” “Don’t blink” or “Don’t look back” — as they work together to build their bank.
“I’m excited for people to see Don’t and feel we made the right call in changing what was the working title: Please Do Not,” said Scott.
“The big idea of the show, challenging people to refrain from doing stuff, caught my ear,” he continued. “It sounded weird and funny with tons of potential.”
Scott, who didn’t know Reynolds before, called the Deadpool star a “terrific” producer, adding: “He is passionate about trying something a bit different for a game show. He and his team were a dream to work with. Honestly, I have a whole new respect for those guys—it’s not easy and they make it look so, which is essential. All I can hope for is that I don’t make it look like hard labor.”
Don’t is executive produced by Reynolds, David Goldberg, Caroline Baumgard, David Hurwitz, Conrad Green, and George Dewey. The series is produced by Banijay Studios North America.
