Release the Hounds – ITV2’s New Horror-Themed Game Show

Release-The-Hounds-F-Comp__131001100505Earlier this month, ITV2 announced that it had commissioned an all-new, reality game show by Sony. With its novel horror theme, Release the Hounds looks set to be unlike any game show that you’ve ever seen before, with contestants facing the “scariest challenges ever endured on TV”.

According to Deadline, to be in with a chance of winning, competitors must complete a range of terrifying tasks including, “navigating a field of crucified scarecrows, descending beneath the floorboards in a deserted cabin, and reading bedtime stories in the nursery from hell”. The contest will culminate in the “ultimate challenge” of outrunning a pack of hounds who have been trained to guard the cash prize.

Release the Hounds was created by Gogglebox, with the company’s founders, Adam Wood and Mat Steiner, acting as executive producers on the series. After marketing the show at the Mipcom TV market in Cannes (complete with the sound of hounds barking blared over the loudspeaker system at 5pm every evening), official trailers for the series have now been released. 

The first episode will be broadcast at 10pm on Monday 28th October, just three days before Halloween. Watch if you dare!
