Hello, Adventure is Calling: It’s Justin Timberlake’s New MTV Series ‘The Phone’

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:

Now if you want to play the telephone game on Twitter: Go to @MTV (MTV on Twitter) and look for the key word, #thephone.

Then re-tweet the last message (but change one word).  And that’s it.  Do it and you’ll be in on the fun.
