Fox Orders Game Show, BOOM!

April 7, 2014 by  

Fox has ordered a new reality game show, BOOM!, the network announced.

So what the heck is BOOM? Per Fox, “BOOM! fuses the drama, intensity and thrill of a blockbuster action movie with the high-octane fun of a video game. Full of comedy, color and excitement, BOOM!’s fresh approach rolls the intellectual AND physical challenges of existing game shows into one can’t-miss event for viewers of all ages. A squad of four players must defuse eight (replica) “bombs” by answering trivia questions correctly within a strict time limit. In nail-biting scenes, the nominated player must defuse one “bomb” per question by cutting through colored wires representing multiple choice answers…which the ticking clock counts down. If the player answers correctly, the prize money builds and he/she moves to the next “bomb.” BOOM! delivers fierce tension and light-hearted humor in quick succession, extending the experience not only to those in the studio, but also to viewers at home who can play along.”

BOOM! is a perfect blend of family entertainment and FOX attitude,” said Simon Andreae, Executive Vice President, Alternative Entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company in a statement.  “Never has a ticking clock been so ingeniously placed at the center of a game, and never has a game more inventively borrowed from the language of a thriller. It’s as if Jack Bauer made brain love with Jeff Foxworthy.”
