Facebook is in the TV business now.
It will feature 50 competitors — one from each state — as they go head-to-head in games and challenges for a chance to win $500,000.
Production is underway. Other details, like premiere date and episode counts, are TBA.
Facebook is making a push into creating its own original video. In addition to short-form content made with partners like Buzzfeed and Vox, Facebook will be making its own wholly-owned, TV-caliber scripted and unscripted content to distribute to its nearly 2 billion users worldwide. Last State Standing and Loosely Exactly Nicole are its first forays into this arena.
