"DUEL," THE HEAD-TO-HEAD, HIGH-STAKES COMPETITION
GAME SHOW, RETURNS TO ABC, FRIDAY, APRIL 4
Mike Greenberg (ESPN's "Mike and Mike in the Morning") Hosts
"Episode 101" -- "Duel" -- the adrenaline pumping, high-stakes competition game show -- returns on a weekly basis FRIDAY, APRIL 4 (9:00-10:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network. Mike Greenberg (ESPN's "Mike and Mike in the Morning" radio show) hosts.
In a cutting edge format � combining trivia challenges like those on "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire" with the strategy played in the "World Series of Poker" -- contestants will once again find themselves in intense head-to-head matches, reacting quickly under pressure and outsmarting their opponents by using strategy and deception, as well as intellect and skill, in the race to win big money. Each episode will feature a new group of contestants vying to duel either the previous week's winner or a brand new opponent. The goal of each contestant is to win a series of duels and take home the $500,000 jackpot. But along the way, contestants will be tempted to leave the game and walk away with their accumulated winnings.
An online game of "Duel," developed by BermanBraun, is available on ABC.com at http://duelthegame.abc.com/. Online gamers can choose to play either against the computer, or to challenge other players' duels from around the country.
