GSN has greenlit eight episodes of a new horror-themed game show, Hellevator, produced by Matador and Jason Blum’s Blumhouse Prods in association with Lionsgate TV. It’s slated to premiere later this year.
In Hellevator, a team of three friends rides a haunted elevator into various levels of an abandoned warehouse. One player must get out on each floor and conquer a frightening challenge in order to earn money (up to $50,000) for the team. But if they don’t make it back in time, the elevator moves on without them. The show features Jen and Sylvia Soska, aka the “Twisted Twins.”
Executive producers are Jason Blum (Paranormal Activity, The Purge, Sinister and Insidious franchises) and Matador’s Jay Peterson and Todd Lubin. Jen and Sylvia Soska are repped by APA and Zero Gravity.
