5. The Great Escape (TNT)
Premiere date: June 24
Before we describe this show, let us point out that it is executive produced by director Ron Howard. Keep that in mind. Now, The Great Escape will follow three teams of people as they compete for cash prizes by fulfilling challenges worthy of Hollywood blockbusters, like sinking ships or being trapped in prisons. Yes.
TNT’s first reality show is about people competing for money in action movie-esque challenges, and, again, is being executive produced by action movie director Ron Howard. Let that sink in a moment. Now, set your DVRs. —T.G.
