Fox is bringing a new game show to their lineup from the mind of Justin Timberlake that has the potential to give contestants some huge earnings, like $20 million dollars worth. The high stakes game show is called Spin the Wheel and it will be hosted by Parenthood’s Dax Shepard, who will also be starring in the upcoming Fox comedy Bless This Mess.

Spin the Wheel will feature a massive, spinning wheel that holds various amounts of cash prizes. Through game-play, contestants will answer trivia questions and for each correct answer large amounts of of cash are added to wheel wherever they want to place it. Each incorrect answer will find dangerous “wedges” added to the wheel that could immediately bring their total back to zero. “With massive prize money on the line, contestants must make tough decisions: whether to walk away, or risk it all to Spin the Wheel one last time.”
[row]“This show is massive on so many levels and has the ability to change people’s lives. We have a charismatic and hilarious host in Dax, an uber-producer in Andrew, an insanely creative global superstar in Justin and one of the biggest prizes in primetime history,” said Fox’s President of Alternative Entertainment and Specials Rob Wade.

The show will be executive produced by The Wall’s Andrew Glassman, Rick Yorn, and Johnny Wright and is expected to premiere sometime during the 2018-2019 season.
So, what do you think? Does it sound like a game show that you would want to tune into? With resident funnyman Dax Shepard leading the way, it’s sure to be a good time no matter what!
Having studied Media & Writing at James Madison University, I always knew that I wanted to do some type of creative writing, but being able to write about zombies, Starks, and superheroes on a daily basis for Fan Fest is my actual dream. While I probably shouldn’t be as proud as I am to be so similar to Nick Miller, I do hope to one day write my own “Pepperwood Chronicles’.
