“Slide Show” will have two teams going up against each other in showdowns that test both mind and body, and will force contestants to think on their feet. Challenges involve songs, dancing and sketches, all while navigating the set which is on a 22.5-degree angle tilt.
“I think unscripted television should be outrageous and audacious by definition. Unfortunately, not much is, as of late,” Fox entertainment chairman Kevin Reilly said. “‘Slide Show’ is the most ridiculously fun and out-there thing I’ve seen in quite a while. Steve Carell knows a thing or two about big laughs, and I am really happy to be working with Steve again, and the team at Shine, to bring Slide Show to Fox.”
“Slide Show” recently launched in France and has already found success in Portugal and Denmark. It will soon launch in Spain, the Netherlands and China.
“Comedy is subjective,” Carell said. “But if you don’t find ‘Slide Show’ to be funny and enormously entertaining, then you will never be my friend.”
