ABC Casting For New “Mystery Reality” Competition Program
All of the fans who clamor for more of ABC’s cult competition series The Mole may want to listen up to this one. ABC is partnering with Anthony E. Zuiker, the creator and producer of the CSI: Crime Scene Investigation series and 51 Minds Entertainment, producers of Ton of Cash, The Surreal Life and its million spin-offs for a new competition program. ABC has put out a casting call, searching for people who fancy themselves to be “armchair detectives” or “perceptive problem solvers.” The show will pit contestants against one another, competing against others trying to get to the bottom of a given task. The program looks to bring elements together of two mystery-based programs: The Mole, a reality game the casting call cites that revolved around finding a saboteur in a group of players that ran in the early 2000s (and one season in 2008) and had a tight fan following – just not enough to continue for very long – and the hit CSI: drama series airing on CBS. Any person over the age of 21 interested in competing should visit RealityWanted to sign up. We’ll keep an eye on this show and report more here at BuzzerBlog as we learn more about it.
