ABC Gives Pilot Order To Wipeout
ABC has given a pilot commitment to "Wipeout," a new reality series from the makers of "Deal or No Deal" and "Extreme Makeover Home Edition." "Wipeout" features 50 contestants navigating through "the world's largest obstacle course" for a $50,000 cash price. "Wipeout" bears similarities to the reality hit "Fear Factor" from NBC. The show is described by producers as " 'Fear Factor' with none of the gross." Once the pilot is done ABC will make a decision on whether to greenlight "Wipeout" to series.
