Expect crazy cash prizes.
Justin Timberlake is looking to keep his money stream going by producing a new game show that has been picked up by Fox. According to Variety, the game show will be centered around an enormous wheel filled with cash prizes. Entitled Spin The Wheel, contestants must fight to keep their money from dwindling strategically. Each spin leads to a question that can open a cash prize, but wedges are placed along the wheel that turns the process into somewhat of a maze. Contestants can lose everything if their money ends up in the wrong portion of the wheel/maze. Dax Shepard is set to host the series. “I can’t think of a better job than giving out millions of dollars to nice people,” stated Shepard. “It’s my chance to finally be Willy Wonka.”
Fox’s President of Alternative Entertainment and Specials Rob Wade relayed the network’s confidence in Shepard and Timberlake. “This show is massive on so many levels and has the ability to change people’s lives. We have a charismatic and hilarious host in Dax, an uber-producer in Andrew, an insanely creative global superstar in Justin, and one of the biggest prizes in primetime history. We can’t wait to Spin the Wheel.”
