Justin Timberlake and MTV have teamed up for a new reality show titled The Phone (it premieres tonight at 10). Here's the trailer for the show. Though the title makes it sound like a remake of one of those Japanese horror flicks, the trailer makes it look more like The Mole or 24.

Rescue Me'Rescue Me'
(10PM, FX)
Only Tommy Gavin could hatch a plan as bizarre – and bizarrely effective – as this.

When he finds out Colleen and Bart (aka "Black Shawn") plan to get married, he decides the best way to break them up is to complicate their relationship by encouraging his daughter to have sex.

Elsewhere in what is proving to be one of the show's funniest, best seasons, Franco and Mike butt heads over their differing viewpoints on 9/11, Mike – who seems oddly smarter, for the most part, this season – gets a new idea for a theme bar, Tommy meets Sheila's new therapist and Sean meets up with the creepiest back doctor ever.

Will you answer the call on Justin Timberlake's The Phone? - VIDEO

The Phone, a new action-reality show on MTVJustin Timberlake is not only bringing sexy back, but he's trying to bring some excitement back to the reality television genre.

While it's initially reminding me of the old "I know who you are and I saw what you did" and "the call's coming from inside the house," it's not that at all. It's more like folks signed up for a game show not knowing any details at all. Then the phone rings ...

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.
