Justin Timberlake starred in one of the most infamous “Punk’d” pranks of all time, when he was brought to tears after he thought the IRS was going to take away his house for unpaid taxes.
Well, come tonight, Timberlake will take his act to MTV once again, but this time, he’ll be behind the scenes as the executive producer of the new reality series “The Phone.”
“‘The Phone’ is a high-intensity game show where we take four real-life people, not actors, we take four real-life people, and we thrust them into physical and mental nightmare.
And you get to watch what happens. There’s a chance every show to win 50 grand.”
The show features people answering a phone call and then having to go through intense missions to win the game and the money. “We plot each show around a movie plot,” Timberlake added. “And they become the main character in this movie.”
Watch The Phone tonight!!
