TOTAL BLACKOUT will premiere on Wednesday, April 25 on Syfy (10-11 p.m. ET). The series is a half-hour game show which places contestants in complete darkness to compete in challenges. It will be hosted by current 'Dancing With the Stars' contestant Jaleel White ("Family Matters," "Grown Ups").
The series is an extreme 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 it's no-holds barred as The Players face their fears and unexpected surprises in a series of nerve-wracking games.
From smell, touch and taste to even controlling their own motor movements, all the contestants' senses will be pushed to the ultimate test in TOTAL BLACKOUT.
"Total Blackout" is produced by Fremantle Media and was created by Henrik Nielsen ("Can You Duet?," Danish versions of "The X Factor," "Got Talent" and "Pop Idol"). Nielsen and Jeff Apploff ("Million Dollar Money Drop," "Don't Forget the Lyrics") serve as executive producers. Jack Martin ("Who's Still Standing," "Deal or No Deal") is co-executive producer.
"Total Blackout" joins Syfy's growing stable of hit reality series such as "Face Off," "Ghost Hunters," "Fact or Faked: Paranormal Files," "Hollywood Treasure," "Haunted Collector" and "Paranormal Witness" as well as the upcoming "Monster Man" and "Dream Machines."
