Ricky Gervais is getting in the game show business. According to The Hollywood Reporter, ABC has ordered a new series from The Office co-creator called Five to Survive.
The hour-long show “will see grown-up contestants answer 10 questions for a chance to win a cash prize. If the adult can’t answer a question correctly, he or she can turn to a group of five kids who have been asked the same question.”
Gervais will executive produce the project alongside David Goldberg and Caroline Baumgard.
From ABC executive Robert Mills:
When Ricky presented his idea for Five to Survive, we immediately knew this was a project that needed to land here at ABC. It has spirit, it’s fun and it will have the unforgettable comedic moniker that is Ricky Gervais.”
