Hosted by actor Jaleel White, the a comedic game show in which contestants battle each other and their fears in a series of challenges. However, there is a twist — all the challenges are played in complete darkness. There are no lights, no blindfolds and no-holds barred as the players face their fears and unexpected surprises in a series of nerve-wracking games.
“Total Blackout brings to life, in a wonderfully clever, intense and funny way, what can happen when your imagination runs away with you, said Mark Stern, President of Original Content, Syfy, and Co-Head of Content for Universal Cable Productions. We’re also very excited to be partnered with a company like FreemantleMedia, who are using their amazing expertise to make this show one that makes you gasp and laugh in the same breath.”
Total Blackout will begin production in Los Angeles on October 18th.
