ABC'S "PRIMETIME: WHAT WOULD YOU DO?" HEADS TO UTAH, FRIDAY, MAY 25
"Primetime: What Would You Do?" hits the road to see how people will react to scenarios shot in Utah. Will reactions there be the same as those encountered when "WWYD" built similar scenarios in the Northeast?
Using hidden cameras, "What Would You Do?" establishes everyday scenarios and then captures people's reactions. Whether people are compelled to act or mind their own business, John Qui�ones reports on their split-second and often surprising decision-making process. "Primetime: What Would You Do?" airs FRIDAY, MAY 25 (9:00-10:00 p.m., ET) on ABC. (Rebroadcast. OAD: 3/2/12)
Friday, May 25 Scenarios Include:
When "I Do" Becomes "I Don't": A young, engaged couple are at a diner when the woman confesses to her fianc� that, even though she's told him she's a virgin (something mandated in the Mormon faith before marriage), she actually isn't - and hopes he will still marry her. The fianc� is shocked and tells his soon-to-be-bride that he cannot. Will fellow diners say anything?
Diner Dispute: Will anyone come to the aid of a woman who shows signs of being both physically and verbally abused by her significant other?
Dad, I've Got A Secret: Will anyone react to a teen boy who tells his unsympathetic father he is gay?
Sticky Fingers: Will any bystanders intervene when a woman steals merchandise from a ski store? What if the thief is a former beauty queen?
"Primetime: What Would You Do?" has won awards from the Chicago International Television Festival, and the Avon Foundation's 2006 Voice of Change Award for exposing "injustice and wrongdoing against women and bringing the message of domestic violence to the mainstream."
David Sloan is executive producer and Danielle Baum Rossen is the senior broadcast producer of "What Would You Do?"
