A couple of days ago, Sci-Fi announced that production for Endemol’s newest reality competition series titled Estate of Panic
has started this week. Moreover, actor Steve Valentine
, who plays Dr. Nigel Townsend on the NBC series Crossing Jordan
, was enlisted to host the show. Dubbed as television's most physically and psychologically challenging competition show yet, Estate of Panic

From the creators of Fear Factor
comes Estate of Panic
, a new horror-based reality series which features a massive estate with hidden treasures behind closed doors. In each episode, these large amounts of cash are to be sought out by seven contenders. It’s not as easy as it seems, though, as the contenders will also have to deal with some hair-raising challenges. Immediately after each of the three challenges, the contenders are gathered and two of them are eliminated. The winnings they have gathered will soon be added up to the prize pot. Whoever is the last contender left will be given the chance to take on the final challenge in the Vault Room, where their final winnings will be determined.
Executively produced by Richard Hall for Endemol USA, Estate of Panic
joins the ranks of the successful range of reality series collection of the company such as Deal or No Deal
, 1 VS 100
, Fear Factor
, Extreme Makeover: Home Edition
and Big Brother
