ABC Orders Word Game “Spell-Mageddon”

Cable networks across the board are seeing the value of game shows: they’re cheap and tend to do well.  ABC Family is getting back into our genre with the pick-up of Spell-Mageddon.  The Hollywood Reporter exclusively revealed the story earlier today.  The series has been described as Wipeout meets a spelling bee.  Contestants are challenged to spell increasingly difficult words while coping with equally difficult and hilarious distractions.  If you’ve checked out Los Angeles-based Craigslist contestant calls recently, odds are, you’ve seen something about this.  The series will debut Wednesday, July 24th, at 9:00PM ET.

Does it sound like something you’d watch?

    Now if contestants had to enter an obstacle course to retrieve the letters needed to spell a word, that’d be something.

    “Whaddaya mean ‘definite’ doesn’t have an A?!” [runs back in for replacement letter]

    This sounds horrible…. Killer Karaoke doesn’t work, and this probably won’t either.

  • Ken in Hong Kong says:

    “Million Dollar Password” was a better concept than this, and we saw how long it lasted.
