Michael Bay is about to tackle a brand new subject: reality. The director will get a strangle-hold on the action-adventure reality series "One Way Out." It’s being called "a game with no rules" and apparently also a game with no solid premise, as evidenced by Bay’s description:
"For my first television project I wanted to do something that had never been done before, and I believe that One Way Out accomplishes that. Combining unique twists, death-defying challenges, and stunning visuals, we are reinventing the genre, showing just how far people will go when they are stripped of their bare necessities and forced to do whatever it takes to survive."
The man clearly woke up from a dream and wrote that down in his bitchin’ idea pad. Clear it up a bit for us, press release writer:
The reality adventure series will pit ordinary people from all walks of life against each other, creating extreme competition and deep allegiances. All players have secret pasts that must be kept hidden from their fellow competitors, setting the stage for an intense game of trust and betrayal. Players will be forced to adapt to and conquer new hostile environments each week, building towards a climactic showdown where all secrets are exposed and a shocking development revealed.
Nope, still sounds like a hodgepodge of adverbs and buzz words. They should just call it "Michael Bay’s Reality Show!" So much reality it’s f*cking unreal!
Magical Elves, the production company behind the hits "Top Chef" and "Project Runway" will hold Bay’s hand through the process. Then he’l break their thumbs, kill the guards, and hop on his personal helicopter, because no one tells Michael Bay how the world really works. NO ONE. (Deadline)
