TV show description:
In this reality series, a gigantic 20-foot wall has been constructed in a suburban area that surrounds an entire neighborhood. The eight families who are trapped inside the enclosure compete in games, pitting household against household. They’ve known each other for years, but their close bonds are tested each week as they have to kick another family out of the game.
At the start of the series, host Matt Rogers gathers the families together to tell them that the wall completely cuts them off from the outside world and won’t be able to visit friends or go to work. Without any gas or electricity, families have no choice but to spend quality time together and need to work together as a team in the upcoming games.
Each episode, the families take part in a challenge. The winners of the first game win a luxury item of some kind like a refrigerator that’s powered by a generator. They are also safe from elimination and must nominate two other families for possible elimination. One family is voted out each week and leave their neighborhood through the walls’ only the exit. Though they may be sad to see their friends go, the remaining families are one step closer to winning the $250,000 grand prize.
