My answer? Um…yes. If Justin Timberlake produced a 12-part series centered around corn husking, I would watch. A Timberlake-produced documentary on erasers? Sign me up! Justin producing a reality show about transgender veterinarians? Let me set my TiVo! Frankly, I’m a sucker for anything that JT is involved in (although Black Snake Moan kinda made me uncomfortable). So the news that the singer and MTV would be teaming up for The Phone, a reality competition in which people are set out on an adventure to win $50,000, made me quite happy. Timberlake showed a brief clip of the show when he was on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon (skip to 3:40 in the clip below) and it looked intriguing — kinda like a reality version of the 1997 Michael Douglas thriller, The Game. MTV announced yesterday that the series premieres on April 21 at 10 p.m. ET/PT. Will you tune in for The Phone, PopWatchers?
