THE CW ORDERS NEW REALITY SERIES
“THE HUNT” AND “PERFECT SCORE”
December 12, 2012 (Burbank, California) ? Continuing to add more year-round original programming, The CW has ordered two new reality series: THE HUNT, a thrilling, one-hour competition series, and PERFECT SCORE, a unique twist on finding the ideal mate, it was announced today by Mark Pedowitz, President, The CW. Premiere dates will be announced at a later time.
THE HUNT is an intense wilderness competition taking place over one month, as 12 teams of two are provided no food, water, or shelter, but must compete in a game where they’ll rely on their physicality, survival skills, and hunting skills to endure their conditions, capture one another, and ultimately win a huge cash prize. Executive produced by David Garfinkle (“Ready For Love”), Jay Renfroe (“Ready For Love”) and Greg Goldman (“Ready For Love”), THE HUNT is from Renegade 83 and Blackbird Television in association with Warner Horizon Television.
PERFECT SCORE puts a unique twist on dating game shows by not only giving players a chance to win a date, but also the opportunity to win cold hard cash — IF they can successfully identify their perfect match. In each half-hour episode, two friends compete to see who can pick their ideal mate from a group of 12 prospective singles, after both the players and the contestants have taken compatibility tests. These tests are used to assign cash values to each possible match, and the player who selects the most compatible single – with the highest cash value – wins the cash prize and the date! Created and executive produced by Scott St. John (“America’s Got Talent,” “Deal or No Deal,”), PERFECT SCORE is from FremantleMedia North America (“American Idol,” “The X Factor,” “America’s Got Talent”).
