Fox has ordered the new game show Boom! to series, the network announced on Monday. The project comes from the joint venture between Israel's Keshet and Dick Clark Productions.
Boom! features a team of four players who must defuse eight replica bombs by cutting through colored wires representing multiple choice trivia questions. If the players answer correctly, the prize money builds and the players move on to the next "bomb." The series just became the highest-rated game show launch ever in Israel.
Fox sets finale, summer premiere dates
"Boom! is a perfect blend of family entertainment and Fox attitude," Simon Andreae, Fox's executive vice president of alternative entertainment said in a statement. "Never has a ticking clock been so ingeniously placed at the center of a game, and never has a game more inventively borrowed from the language of a thriller. It's as if Jack Bauer made brain love with Jeff Foxworthy."
The sale marks the second project from Keshet DCP. The company sold Israel's popular singing series Rising Star to ABC, which premieres later this month.
