‘Squid Game’ Reality Series Coming to Netflix With Biggest Cash Prize in TV History – Hollywood Reporter

Netflix is staging a reality TV series based on its global dystopian smash, Squid Game, that will have 456 players competing for a chance to win $4.56 million.

The announcement comes on the heels of Netflix officially renewing Squid Game for a second season. The South Korean survival drama’s debut season was released in September and holds the record as Netflix’s most popular series of all time, racking up more than 1.65 billion view hours in its first 28 days.

The idea to make a real version of Squid Game is perhaps a no-brainer.

YouTube star MrBeast produced an unofficial Squid Game competition and made a 25-minute video that’s racked up more than 250 million views.

Netflix has an open casting for the reality show Squid Game, but contestants must be English-speaking and understand the game’s directions.

If the show is successful, it might be adapted for other countries.

It’s unclear how the $4.56 million prize will be distributed as a winner-take-all payout or among several finalists.

The Challenge is a co-production between Studio Lambert and The Garden, and will be filmed in the UK.
