NEW POP CULTURE GAME SHOW "SPIN THE WHEEL," EXECUTIVE-PRODUCED BY JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE, AND HOSTED BY COMEDIAN DAX SHEPARD, TO AIR DURING THE 2018-2019 SEASON ON FOX

New Game Show Offers One of Biggest Prizes in Primetime History; Opportunity to Win More than $20 Million in Cash Per Episode

Format Created by Timberlake and Glassman Media

FOX has ordered SPIN THE WHEEL, a high-stakes game show offering a chance to win over $20 million per episode. Executive-produced by Grammy and Emmy Award-winning musician and actor Justin Timberlake, and hosted by actor, director, writer and comedian Dax Shepard ("Hit and Run"), the show offers life-changing opportunities to win fortunes each episode with the spin of a massive, unpredictable wheel. The show, created by Timberlake and Andrew Glassman ("The Wall") of Glassman Media, is scheduled to premiere during the 2018-2019 season on FOX.

"This show is massive on so many levels and has the ability to change people's lives," said Rob Wade, President, Alternative Entertainment and Specials, Fox Broadcasting Company. "We have a charismatic and hilarious host in Dax, an uber-producer in Andrew, an insanely creative global superstar in Justin and one of the biggest prizes in primetime history. We can't wait to SPIN THE WHEEL."

"SPIN THE WHEEL is the opportunity of a lifetime, and every time someone spins, a massive fortune is on the line," said executive producer Andrew Glassman. "This is all about a rollercoaster of emotions, positive energy and some incredible wins."

"I can't think of a better job than giving out millions of dollars to nice people," said host Dax Shepard. "It's my chance to finally be Willy Wonka."

A suspenseful, high-energy mix of pop culture trivia, strategy and simple whirling luck, SPIN THE WHEEL pits 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. With massive prize money on the line, contestants must make sweat-inducing, gut-wrenching decisions: whether to walk away or risk it all to SPIN THE WHEEL one last time.

SPIN THE WHEEL was created by Justin Timberlake and Andrew Glassman and is produced by Tennman Entertainment, Glassman Media and LBI. In addition to Timberlake and Glassman, Rick Yorn and Johnny Wright executive-produce the series. The show will be distributed internationally by IMG.
