Justin Timberlake Named Executive Producer for New Game Show

Pop-star Justin Timberlake is working on a new project and it might not be what you’d expect.

Timberlake will executive produce a new game show to appear on FOX.

It’s called “Spin the Wheel” and contestants earn cash by overcoming challenges on a rotating 40-foot wheel, reports Nashville Business Journal.

The show is created by Timberlake and Andrew Glassman, who serve alongside Rick Yorn and Johnny Wright as executive producers, according to Variety. It is described as pitting contestants against a colossal, spinning 40-foot wheel that holds incredible sums of cash prizes in its rotation. Throughout the game, players will answer trivia questions – each correct answer adds more extreme amounts of cash in the wheel’s wedges in a strategic location of their choice, while each incorrect answer adds more dangerous wedges that could instantly bring their total back to zero.

The Show will be hosted by Dax Shepard who told Variety,“I can’t think of a better job than giving out millions of dollars to nice people. It’s my chance to finally be Willy Wonka.”

“Spin the Wheel” will be produced by Timberlake’s production company Tennman Entertainment, Glassman Media, and LBI.
