The pair have created an action-oriented reality thriller for TNT that challenges contestants to escape from movie-inspired scenarios. From THR:In "The Great Escape," ordinary people are put in cinema-inspired settings, challenging them to find a way out using everyday ingenuity. Each week, teams are dropped off blindfolded in a different extreme environment -- lost in the desert, trapped in the mountains, locked in a prison, marooned on an island. This sounds like a fun and fresh premise. There's so many classic films that can be channeled for the program. Contestants could spend a terrifying night at Camp Crystal Lake, or get your teeth drilled by a nazi dentist. Or worse yet, they could be forced to raise an illegitimate child with Katherine Heigl.
