Adam Scott (‘Big Little Lies’) coming to Atlanta to host ABC game show ‘Don’t’

Audience members needed August 2-5

Adam Scott, an actor in “Big Little Lies” and “Parks and Recreation,” will be hosting an ABC game show “Don’t” to be shot in Atlanta.

Here’s the premise:

Contestants and their family and friends have a chance to win a cash prize of up to $100,000 by tackling tasks each with the simple rule of “Don’t.” In each episode of the comedic physical game show, members of the four-person team will strive to accomplish various challenges — such as “Don’t laugh,” “Don’t blink” or “Don’t look back” — as they work together to build their bank.

They are also seeking audience members to clap and whoop along to the festivities from August 2 to 5. You can email  with three photos (head, body and recent dated selfie), age, height, weight and all contact information with the subject line: DONT.

Shooting will start at about 10:30 a.m. and will pay $100 for seven hours.  

They are also casting for the show itself here. 

Ryan Reynolds is one of the executive producers. That does not mean he will necessarily be there.
