It’s time to strap on your boots and get your game face on because “Barmageddon” is upon us! Long-time friends and pop culture kings Blake Shelton and Carson Daly have paired up to executive produce the exciting new celebrity game show, coming soon to USA Network.
Hosted by WWE Hall of Famer Nikki Bella, the series will see Shelton open the doors of his Nashville-based bar Ole Red to welcome a rowdy crowd for live music sing-alongs and well-loved bar games — with a twist! With Daly behind the bar and Shelton on stage, Bella will keep the competition fierce and set the stakes as celebrity friends go head-to-head in games such as Air Cannon Cornhole, Keg Curling, Drunken Axe Hole, Sharts (“Shelton Darts”), and many more.
“Nashville is known for great music and hospitality, which makes it the perfect setting,” Shelton said in a press release. “I’m excited about ‘Barmageddon’ and can’t wait for friends, old and new, to join my buddy Carson and me for some drinks, music, and high-spirited fun at Ole Red.”
Each episode will see two celebrities play a unique set of five games in the bar to win a prize for a viral Internet sensation each has chosen to support. “Plucked from obscurity following their epic misadventures on the Internet, these now-infamous stars find themselves at Ole Red hoping to be redeemed. The competition heats up when the losing rival of each round has a chance to even the score by spinning the Wheel of Redemption, a risky move with hilarious consequences,” per the press release.
Besties Shelton and Daly will provide some much-needed words of wisdom — with the occasional good-natured heckling thrown in, of course — to keep the crowd rowdy and the party going.
“Blake, Lee and I wanted to create a show where the audience can feel like they’re hanging out with us at Ole Red in Nashville, having a drink and cheering on friends as they compete in the ultimate test of athleticism and endurance — bar games!” Daly said, per the press release.
“Barmageddon” is produced by White Label Productions and JLP Pictures for USA with Blake Shelton, Carson Daly, Lee Metzger, and White Label’s Chris Wagner serving as executive producers.
