FremantleMedia picks up The Phone

by Adam Finley, posted Apr 17th 2007 10:01AM

phoneProduction rights to a popular Dutch reality program called The Phone were recently secured by FremantleMedia, which means we could be seeing a version of the series here in the states.

The series follows contestants as they traverse a major city to find clues that will lead to a cash prize. They communicate through mobile phones and a helicopter tracks their progress for the home audience. Also, there's an insane Vietnam vet in the helicopter that shoots at the contestants.

Well, most of that last paragraph is true. At any rate, I think it sounds like a pretty cool idea as far as reality shows go. The show is described as a "movie-like experience," and if that's true, I think it could definitely appeal to an American audience.
