ABC Plans to Throw a Bunch of Shit Off the Roof of a Mysterious LA Skyscraper

New, 19 comments

ABC is casting this weekend for a new primetime game show called Downfall. The show will be shot on the roof of a skyscraper somewhere in Los Angeles, and gameplay will involve throwing shit off of that roof. The flyer clearly shows the Ritz-Marriott in downtown, but a spokesperson wouldn't say if that's the building being used for the game show. Secret-y! From the description: "There will be a huge cash prize, and the game format adds the excitement of watching much-hoped-for prizes head for the side of a skyscraper as contestants work against the clock to answer the trivia questions. If they fail at the game contestants will see what they’re playing for drop off the side of the building!" The spokesperson clarifies that both cash and prizes will fly off this mysterious "very, very tall building." So is the flyer a giveaway or a red herring? Will assorted objects rain down on the heads of Downtowners or Westwoodites or Century Cityans? Saturday's your chance to get in on the ground floor (har!).
