Justin Timberlake: singer, actor and now — executive producer!
The “SexyBack” crooner is helming a reality series for MTV billed as a "real life Bourne Identity” called The Phone, the network announced Friday.
Each episode beings with two hidden cell phones ringing on opposite ends of a major city. Once picked up, a "mysterious guide gives contestants five seconds to concede whether or not they wish to play the game for a chance of winning a huge cash prize," MTV said in a statement.
Afterwards, the players work against each other on various missions while keeping in touch with the guide via cell phone, and being followed by a helicopter hovering above.
The show, which is based off a Dutch series of the same name, is slated to premiere this fall.
