ABC has announced a new tournament-style competition show called Duel.
The show will be hosted by Mike Greenberg of ESPN’s Mike and Mike in
the Morning. Duel goes into production after Thanksgiving and is being
produced by BermanBraun and Rocket Science Laboratories.
Duel will feature head-to-head matches, requiring players to use shrewdness and manipulation to win. A contestant who is able to react quickly under pressure and outsmart their opponents through strategy and deception, intellect and skill could potentially win more than $1.5 million.
Duel starts with twenty contestants. However, if someone gets just one question wrong, then that player loses the match. The top four contestants qualify to duel for the guaranteed jackpot.
Duel will premiere on Monday, December 17 from 8:00PM to 9:00PM ET/PT and run over six nights. The finale will air on Sunday, December 23 from 8:00PM to 9:00PM ET/PT.
