A �PRIMETIME� MISSION IMPOSSIBLE: ORDINARY PEOPLE FACE TWO
EXTRAORDINARY CHALLENGES, THURSDAY, MARCH 16 ON ABC
Can 12 Strangers Find Each Other in New York City,
Having Never Met and Without Any Clue Where to Look?
A Completely New Way to Lose 15 Pounds in Two Months
What if 12 total strangers were paired off, then dropped in separate locations all over New York City and asked to find each other � without being told where to look? �Primetime� creates a mission impossible with six pairs of people who are told only that two other strangers are looking for them somewhere in �the Big Apple.� With all of New York City as their canvas, how in the world could they do it? According to the Nobel Prize-winning theory of human behavior called �game theory,� it will come down to common perceptions. Jay Schadler reports on the fascinating behavior played out on a Manhattan-sized game board, on �Primetime,� THURSDAY, MARCH 16 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.
And: A foolproof way to lose 15 pounds in two months? With five volunteers, �Primetime� puts the intellectual �game theory� to a very real life test. Will the threat of national exposure -- wearing tiny bathing suits in front of millions on TV -- be enough to motivate these volunteers into dropping the pounds?
