The rapidly expanding Danger! The Universe may soon feature an MVP-centric spin-off.
In conversation with the New York Times Over the weekend, the game show’s executive producer, Michael Davies, announced that he’s interested in taking the franchise’s popular “Tournament of Champions” concept to the next level via a separate Masters league. And to up the ante even further, the new iteration would be broadcast live.
“What we really need to develop is the pro-level version of the game,” said Davies Times. “It seemed ridiculous to me that we have this sport where we take all our best players every year – we take our LeBrons and our Dwyanes – and we swap them all out.”
Davies further acknowledged that the idea of live-streaming the potential spin-off “makes a lot of my staff nervous.”
Final season (the 38th of the show), Danger! saw an unprecedented number of contestants – including Amy Schneider, Matt Amodio, Mattea Roach and Ryan Long – join the ranks of the series’ all-time greatest.
On Sunday, a primetime celebrity edition of Danger! – hosted by Mayim Bialik – launched on ABC.
