Ever thought, “If I joined Squid Game, I would totally win”? Well, Netflix is bringing the global phenomenon to life with the biggest reality competition series ever, Squid Game: The Challenge.
With both the largest cast and lump sum cash prize in reality TV history, 456 real players will enter the game in pursuit of a life-changing reward of $4.56 million (I don’t know how much that is exactly in pesos because my calculator couldn’t handle it). As they compete through a series of games inspired by the original show – plus surprising new additions – their strategies, alliances, and character will be put to the test while competitors are eliminated around them. The stakes are high; but in this game, the worst fate is going home empty-handed.
Recruitment is open now at SquidGameCasting.com. For this round, the Front Man is in search of English-language speakers from any part of the world.
The 10-episode competition series is a co-production between Studio Lambert (The Circle) and The Garden (24 Hours in A&E), part of ITV Studios, and it will be filmed in the UK. Stephen Lambert, Tim Harcourt, Toni Ireland from Studio Lambert, and John Hay, Nicola Hill, and Nicola Brown from The Garden will serve as executive producers.
