WIPEOUT **SEASON PREMIER** Sunday 6/22/14 (8:00-9:00 PM) on ABC

IT WOULDN’T BE A FAMILY GATHERING WITHOUT A LITTLE COMPETITIVE DRAMA

“Fall In The Family” – Welcome home! In its most competitive season to date, “Wipeout” returns with a super-sized family edition, featuring teams of two family members enduring another true bonding (and bruising) experience on the 2-hour premiere, SUNDAY, JUNE 22 (7:00-9:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network. First up on the battle royal of family vs. family, we have the all new qualifier round where our 12 teams will show off their suave snowboarding skills in “The Shed Zone,” where the slopes hit you. As our families continue on their quest for cash, they face the first ever family version of Big Balls Bonanza, where a member from each team will be chosen to compete in the challenge and the farthest jumper will win $5,000 for his or her team. The course continues to dish out discipline as the remaining teams move onto the granddaddy of obstacles, the Classic Sweeper. Only the remaining two teams will take a family trip to the all-new Wipeout Zone for a chance to win the grand prize and earn a spot in the first ever “Tournament of Champions” at the end of the summer.

“Wipeout” is hosted by John Anderson (ESPN’s “SportsCenter”), John Henson (E!’s “Talk Soup”) and co-hosted by Jill Wagner (MTV’s “Teen Wolf”).

“Wipeout” was created by executive producer Matt Kunitz (“101 Ways to Leave a Game Show,” “Fear Factor”). Trice Barto, Scott Larsen, Kevin Wehrenberg and J. Rupert Thompson are also executive producers. The series is produced by Endemol USA.

“Wipeout” is broadcast in 720 Progressive (720P), ABC’s selected HDTV format, with 5.1 channel surround sound. This program carries a TV-PG,L parental guideline.
