FOX FINDS PERFECT FIT WITH "HOLE IN THE WALL"

Casting Calls Announced for Los Angeles, New York and Atlanta

FOX breaks the mold and orders 13 hours of HOLE IN THE WALL, the body-bending, mind-twisting, global game show phenomenon from AMERICAN IDOL producers FremantleMedia North America.

Speed, agility and a hearty sense of humor are essential tools to survive HOLE IN THE WALL, one of the trickiest, fastest, funniest and wettest shows on the planet. During each episode, two teams compete against each other in multiple rounds of play, facing various barrier walls speeding toward them with weird and wacky cut-out shapes. Each team must contort their bodies in unison to fit through the wall or be swept away into a pool below. As players struggle to strike a pose, points � and dignity � can be easily lost with a simple miscalculation. As the rounds progress and the pace heats up, mind over matter, quick thinking, coordination, agility and clever teamwork play a crucial role as each team strives to maneuver through walls literally closing in on them.

HOLE IN THE WALL became an instant ratings success story on-air and online after launching on Japan's Fuji TV in July 2006, where it continues to rank No. 1 in its timeslot. The format swiftly created waves around the world, with FremantleMedia currently producing versions in Argentina, Australia, Brazil, China, Colombia, Denmark, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Israel, Malaysia, Mexico, Russia, Sweden and the U.K.

Open casting calls will be held in the Los Angeles area on Sunday, June 1 (11:00 AM-6:00 PM) at Dave & Buster's in Irvine; New York City on Saturday, June 14 (9:00 AM-4:00 PM) at Dave & Buster's in Times Square; and Atlanta on Saturday, June 14 (10:00 AM-5:00 PM) at the Marriott Atlanta Perimeter Center. For addresses and more information, please go to www.fox.com/casting.htm.

HOLE IN THE WALL is produced by FremantleMedia North America. Cecile Frot-Coutaz and Stuart Krasnow are executive producers.

FremantleMedia North America (FMNA) is the U.S. production division of global media giant FremantleMedia.
