This newly announced event game show on ABC sounds a bit tough—and more than a little mysterious.

ABC has made a direct-to-series order for 500 Questions, a new event game show from executive producer Mark Burnett and Warner Bros. unscripted and alternative television president President Mike Darnell. Burnett and Darnell previously worked together on Fox’s Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader?

Details about the show are scarce, but according to the press release, the show will feature “contestants in a pressure-packed, incredibly intense environment.” Hopefully, it won’t be as much pressure as it will be for the contestants on Sex Box.
