Entertainment - Fox,Mark Burnett to produce game show Rouletter

MUMBAI: Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader producer Mark Burnett Productions and Fox Television Studios are co-producing a new reality game show, Rouletter. The show will feature an innovative spin on the traditional casino game wherein letters will substitue numbers.

Created by Mark Burnett and David Russo, the initial pilot of Rouletter will be produced in South America by Fox TV Studios and executive producer Matthew Gaven.

The show features a patent-pending design for its unique game play set piece that replaces traditional numbers on a Roulette wheel with letters. Contestants then place bets while they battle head-to-head to form words within a specific timeframe to avoid elimination.

Burnett, the president of Mark Burnett Productions, commented, “I love big studio game shows and this concept presents a great opportunity. Fox TV Studios has demonstrated its maverick approach to international production, and I was eager to come on board for what I believe is a breakthrough format in game shows. I look forward to working with the entire team at FtvS as we work to launch this show in the U.S. and abroad.”
