Have you heard about this new reality show, “The Runner?”
Back in 2000 Matt Damon and Ben Affleck sold this concept to ABC, but it was shelved after 9/11, until now!
And it’s not your usual reality show, for starters it’s on your phone.
Verizon Go90 Mobile Network has launched it as a game show reality series that takes place during the month of July. The show follows a ‘Runner’ who is trying to get to six check points across the U.S. while being pursued by five separate teams of’ ‘Chasers.’
Viewers play along in real time and can win cash and prizes by using social media to give tips and information to the ‘Chaser’ teams to help them catch the ‘Runner.’
The ‘Runner’ must follow a series of daily clues and complete a number of tasks that will take him or her across America for 30 consecutive days, and if the ‘Runner’ makes it across the Country without being caught, he or she will win $500,000 dollars.
If he or she does not make it, they go home with nothing.
