Have you ever tried to describe “strip poker” within 90 seconds while doing a 360° loop on a bicycle, or attempted to paint “belly button” when you’re hanging upside down? In this show, the entertainment is as extreme as the activity!
5 strangers. 1 exhausting night. $ 75,000 in prize money split into 4 unequal shares. Who gets the top prize, who settles for less, and who gets nothing at all?!
From the creator of “Unanimous” and “Solitary” comes a compelling new social experiment. 5 determined contestants are isolated and given a grueling task. Inside a safe with a time lock is $ 75,000 in cold, hard cash – split into 4 unequal shares. The cash is theirs to take if they can all agree on who gets each of the 4 shares and who must settle for absolutely nothing!
Every hour is a race against the clock as they negotiate for different portions of the prize. If they find themselves in a deadlock when the time runs out, the share they are playing for is reduced by half!
With interrogation and intimidation as the offense and confession of the truth (or lies) as the best defense, “Deadlock” is a fascinating and revealing game of wits, manipulation and strategic social warfare. Who you are and what you stand for is at least as important as who you pretend to be!
Can 5 strangers who are each accustomed to winning it all break a deadlock for their own good? Or will the player without a prize – with nothing to lose – kill the deal for everyone?
