Blake Shelton and Carson Daly will star in and executive produce the celebrity game show, Barmageddon, hosted by Nikki Bella. The show will air on the USA Network.
Good buddies and The Voice castmates, Blake and Carson, head to Nashville and open the doors to Blake’s bar, Ole Red, and everyone is invited to join their party. With Daly behind the bar and Shelton taking the stage with his house band for live music sing-alongs in front of a rowdy crowd, both the icons and celebrity favorites show a new side to themselves in this anything but ordinary game show.
WWE Hall of Famer and America’s Got Talent: Extreme judge Nikki Bella presides as celebrity friends go head-to-head in a series of classic bar games with a fun twist, including Air Cannon Cornhole, Keg Curling, Drunken Axe Hole, Sharts (“Shelton Darts”) and many more.
Barmageddon: Bar Games with Blake and his celebrity pals at Ole Red
In each episode, two celebrities will play a unique set of five games in the bar to win a much-needed 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 losing rival of each round has a chance to even the score by spinning the Wheel of Redemption.
Blake and Carson will offer words of encouragement, and heckling, to their celebrity friends. On occasion, they might even step in to show off their skills and play a game or two. Ultimately, the winning team takes home a prize while the losing celebrity must accept the shame of defeat.
The series has already started filming. The Ole Red Twitter account promoted the filming of an unnamed special event at the Nashville location. The shows took place in the mornings and afternoons on April 26, 27 and 28. “You will be filmed and may appear on a national channel,” the promotion read.
“Nashville is known for great music and hospitality, which makes it the perfect setting,” Blake said in a press statement. “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.”
“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!” Carlson said.
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.
