ABC Entertainment and Banijay Studios North America announced today that actor Adam Scott is set to host the new ABC game show Don’t. Executive produced by Ryan Reynolds, Don’t is a comedic physical game show that offers contestants the opportunity to team up with their family and friends for the chance to win a cash prize of up to $100,000 by tackling hilarious tasks each with the simple rule of “DON’T.”
In each episode of the ABC game show, members of the four-person team will strive to accomplish various challenges, such as “Don’t Laugh,” “Don’t Blink” or “Don’t Wet Your Pants,” as they work together to build their bank.
“I’m very excited to be the host of ABC’s new game show ‘Don’t,’” said Adam Scott. “As a fan of both ‘games’ and ‘shows,’ I feel we may be onto something here.”
