Normally, I don’t play games. But this time, I am going to make an exception. And I’m going old school with a new school twist and play the game of telephone re-imagined by the folks at MTV for the new Justin Timberlake-produced show, The Phone (Tuesdays, 10 p.m. Eastern/Pacific).
Set to premiere on Tuesday, April 21, The Phone is a “one-hour cinematic competition that simulates what it would be like for viewers to be dropped into the middle of a thrilling adventure movie…it pulls participants out of their everyday lives and thrusts them into a high stakes labyrinth of engagement, suspense and intrigue as they race against time for a huge cash prize.”
How much is this cash prize?
Oh, just a mere $50,000.
There’s more to it. But I’ll let the man himself, Justin Timberlake, tell you all about it:
Then re-tweet the last message (but change one word). And that’s it. Do it and you’ll be in on the fun.
