Welcome to the scariest game show on earth: people find out just how long they can go without their mobile devices as comedians wreak havoc across their personal messages and social media.

As creative executive for the show's premier season on Facebook Watch, I ideated and oversaw challenges, copy, themes, locations, and casting, and served as a literal voice in host Alana Johnston's ear, feeding her on-the-fly jokes and intel I'd dug up on contestants' phones. In post-production, I noted and advised cuts, graphics, music, titling, and design, and facilitated communication between the network and internal teams.
