“Wipeout: The Suicide Squad Special”
The Suicide Squad takes over “Wipeout” this August with special guests and another set of teams battling it out for $25,000!
Hosted by John Cena and Nicole Byer with Camille Kostek serving as field host, “Wipeout” is an extreme course obstacle series that pushes the athleticism and willpower of each contestant to great extremes for an ultimate cash prize — all while delivering more than a few epic fails. Each game is divided into three rounds and features a jaw-dropping, three-stage, obstacle course consisting of multiple strategy and decision points designed to test the stamina of the competitors. The series’ iconic big balls also made a comeback during the April launch of “Wipeout,” which ranked as Cable’s #1 new unscripted series for 2021.
Endemol Shine North America produces the series for TBS, with Sharon Levy, DJ Nurre, Shyam Balsé and Keith Geller, serving as executive producers. John Cena serves as an executive producer. Matt Kunitz, creator of the original series, serves as executive producer and showrunner.
