Syfy Announces New Reality Series: 'Opposite Worlds'

Courtesy: Deadline
Syfy announced today that an unprecedented new series will premiere this January. “Opposite Worlds” is a 12-episode reality series that will air twice a week. The cool part? The viewers will get a chance to interact live via social media and determine the fate of the cast members.

From the release:

In “Opposite Worlds,” 14 people from all walks of life face off in opposing teams that live in a house separated into two distinctly different worlds: one past and one future, each with its own unique advantages and disadvantages. Adding to the drama is a glass wall dividing the house into the two environments, allowing the teams to watch, envy and dread each other's every move.

According to President of Syfy and Chiller, Dave Howe, this show is quite unique, “It invites our audience, who thrive on seeking out what’s new and next, to participate in the ultimate multiplatform experience. And with Syfy’s first-ever weekly live series, they will have the opportunity to become a part of a groundbreaking social experiment, which engages them, as well as the players onscreen, to influence the show's story-telling action and outcomes."

Based on the Chilean format, "Mundos Opuestos," "Opposite Worlds" is executive produced by Eyeworks USA.

 Join the experiment on January 21, 2014.
