Nickelodeon is bringing UK game show “The Crystal Maze” to the United States in an all-new version, co-produced by Bunim/Murray Productions (“The Real World,” “The Challenge”) and RDF Television (“Secret Life of 4 Year Olds”), all under the Banijay Group. “The Crystal Maze” is described as a competitive challenge featuring a family team who must utilize physical and mental skills to successfully navigate an elaborate labyrinth of four giant and immersive themed zones.
Casting is underway on the new series, which begins production on the original set in Bristol, England, this summer. The show’s host, who guides the family through each challenge and adventure, and the series premiere, will be announced at a later date. Ten episodes have been ordered.
“As Nickelodeon embraces co-viewing opportunities for every member of the family, The Crystal Maze brings a new type of action game and storytelling to audiences with its escape room-style gameplay and emphasis on collaboration and teamwork to win,” said Rob Bagshaw, Executive Vice President, Nickelodeon Unscripted Content.
“The Crystal Maze” is executive produced by Gil Goldschein and Maria Pepin from Bunim/Murray Productions, Neale Simpson from Fizz, part of RDF Television, and Stephen David from Stephen David Entertainment. Production of The Crystal Maze for Nickelodeon is overseen by Rob Bagshaw, Executive Vice President, Unscripted Content.
