DESCRIPTION: (from The CW's press release, December 2008) 13 FEAR IS REAL, a new horror/reality series premieres Wednesday, January 7 (8:00-9:00 p.m. ET) on The CW. Special encore performances will air on Fridays (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET) beginning January 9. Thirteen people compete to "stay alive" as they face their deepest fears in an all-out elimination competition and scare-fest. Pitted against each other in situations straight from the horror movies, the 13 will face shocking surprises, psychological scares and lots of "beware of the dark" moments, all designed by a "mastermind" of terror. Each week, one unlucky victim will be "killed off" via frightening challenges and game-playing until only one person is left to win the grand prize of fittingly $66,666.
