Justin Timberlake is producing a new game show with massive cash prizes. Spin the Wheel, set to air on Fox this fall, will offer contestants the chance to win more than $20 million per episode by tackling pop culture trivia and spinning a giant wheel. It’s one of the biggest game show prizes in primetime history. The players will answers trivia questions throughout the show; each right answer adds more prize money to the wheel’s wedges. Each incorrect answer adds wedges that could bring their total back to zero. The concept was created by Justin and Andrew Glassman of Glassman Media. The show will be hosted by Dax Shepard.
I am SO EXCITED about this 🙂https://t.co/DX0oBSKVa4
