Aug. 1 (UPI) — Adam Scott, recently of Big Little Lies, will host the new game show, “Don’t,” ABC announced Thursday.

The “comedic physical game show” allows contestants to compete to win a cash prize of up to $100,000, the network said.

Contestants will team up with family and friends in four-person teams to win money through challenges with themes such as “Don’t Laugh,” “Don’t Blink” or “Don’t Look Back.”

“As a fan of both ‘games’ and ‘shows,’ I feel we may be onto something here,” Scott said.

Scott has starred as Ed Mackenzie in the HBO series, “Big Little Lies,” which had its Season 2 finale last month. He has also starred as Ben Wyatt in NBC sitcom “Parks and Recreation,” as Derek in the film “Step Brothers,” and as Henry Pollard in the Starz sitcom “Party Down.” He has also had a recurring role in NBC’s “The Good Place,” for which he received the Teen Choice Award for Choice TV Villain.

Some of his film credits include “The Disaster Artist,” “The Guilt Trip,” “Monster-in-Law” and “Knocked Up.”

Don’t is produced by Baninjay Studios and executive produced by Ryan Reynolds, David Goldberg, Caroline Baumgard, David Hurwtiz and “Maximum Effort”‘s George Dewey.
