Hazard Pay's Curt Doussett To Host New Syfy Game Show Exit

Syfy has plenty of new programming either in development or on its way to the schedule, including Defiance, which is set to premiere later this month. It’s that time of year when the “in development” stuff either gets dumped or brought to series and now the cable network has announced it will be bringing a new game show called Exit to series. Exit will premiere on June 4, 2013.

Many of us, myself included, would much prefer Syfy to throw its money at more serious fodder like Defiance than on another low budget unscripted program, but the problem is that unscripted programs are cheap to produce and scripted programs are not. This explains why Exit has been greenlighted before some other, more interesting, projects like The Adjustment Bureau or High Moon.

Exit is based on a Japanese game show called Dero! which features four teams made up of two people competing to beat the clock and each other for a $10,000 prize. In each episode, the teams will compete in four different rooms and will be asked to use their brains to solve puzzles in order to move forward in the game. The last team left, wins. According to THR, Hazard Pay’s Curt Doussett will host the series and Exit will be executive produced by Craig Plestis, Michael Binkow, Danny Fenton, and Scott St. John. Six episodes of Exit will be produced for the show’s first round at bat, although if the series does well, more episodes will likely be ordered.

Syfy’s Exit premieres Tuesday, June 4 at 10 p.m. ET.
