MARTIN MULLEN FROM BOSTON, MA AND PISHA WARDEN FROM CONCORD, CA RACE AGAINST THE CONVEYOR BELT ON THIS WEEK’S EDITION OF “DOWNFALL”
Chris Jericho is the Host
“Episode 102” — On this week’s edition of “Downfall,” Martin Mullen (Boston, MA) returns, while Pisha Warden (Concord, CA) gets her chance to play. The high-stakes, adrenaline-pumping game show — which puts contestants atop a 10-story building to see who has the focus and fearlessness to avoid his/her own ‘downfall’ and the chance to win $1 million and other prizes — airs TUESDAY, JUNE 29 (9:01-10:01 p.m., ET) on ABC. Chris Jericho is host.
“Downfall” is played on the roof of a downtown Los Angeles high-rise, where contestants try to quickly answer a series of questions against the clock. Facsimiles of prizes are placed on a conveyor belt, with a pile of cash at the end ranging from $5,000 to $1 million. Players must answer the questions before their prizes go over the edge and off the roof. If the cash goes over, the game is finished and that player is eliminated. There are two ways to back up the belt: “Surrender a Personal Possession” (offering a personal possession for the conveyor belt and risking its going over the edge) or “Friend on the Belt” (putting friends or family members on the belt who can help them find the answers, but who also risk going over the edge).
“Downfall” is broadcast in 720 Progressive (720P), ABC’s selected HDTV format, with 5.1 channel surround sound. A TV parental guideline will be assigned closer to airdate.
“Downfall” is produced by FremantleMedia North America. Ken Warwick and Scott St. John are executive producers.
