SCIENCE CHANNEL'S ALL-NEW "RACE TO ESCAPE" HOSTED BY COMEDIAN JIMMY PARDO PREMIERES ON SATURDAY, JULY 25 AT 10PM ET/PT

- Contestants Race against the Clock to Win the Coveted $25,000 Prize -

(Silver Spring, MD) - Two groups of strangers. Two identical rooms. One goal: GET OUT! In Science Channel's psychological game show RACE TO ESCAPE, hosted by Jimmy Pardo, contestants are armed with only their minds and knowledge as they race against the clock and an opposing team to solve puzzles and unravel cryptic clues hidden inside themed escape rooms. On the other side of the door is a cash prize of $25,000, and as the clock ticks away, so does the cash. Find out what happens when RACE TO ESCAPE premieres Saturday, July 25 at 10PM ET/PT.

Each episode of RACE TO ESCAPE features an entirely different setting, ranging from a 1960s Barbershop complete with barber chairs and sinks, to an ornately decorated Chinese restaurant. However, all the rooms have two things in common: no windows and a single door with five giant locks, each of which can only be opened by cracking the code contained in the clues. The two teams will have one hour to race against each other and solve five different puzzles and challenges to win the prize.

"RACE TO ESCAPE takes the game show format to a level that will challenge and excite Science Channel viewers as they try to match wits with the contestants each week," said Rita Mullin, general manager of Science Channel. "It's truly an interactive and smart experience, and Jimmy Pardo provides the perfect balance of smarts and hilarity as he guides viewers through each episode."

A seasoned veteran of late night television, Jimmy Pardo serves as host of RACE TO ESCAPE. He has appeared on "CONAN," "@midnight," "The Tonight Show," "The Late Late Show" and his own "Comedy Central Presents" special. He also hosts the very popular "Never Not Funny" podcast.

In the premiere episode, "The Explorer's Study," two teams find themselves locked in two identical lavish 19th century drawing rooms. Like a room out of the movie Clue, the study is filled with books, model ships and old maps. Everything the teams need to open the five locks and escape is within those four walls - if they have the smarts to figure it out.

RACE TO ESCAPE is produced for Science Channel by Entertainment One, also known as eOne in association with Axial Entertainment. For eOne, the executive producers are Riaz Patel, Tara Long, John Morayniss, and Kevin Healey. For Science Channel, Rocky Collins is executive producer and Presley Adamson is coordinating producer. Bernadette McDaid is vice president of production.
