From a media release, June 4, 2009:
Marblemedia and Challenge Producer Alan Bishop are joining forces again to develop a new prime-time adult show, TRUCE OR DARE. Bishop, a seasoned Facilitator, Challenge Producer and Corporate Strategist, has designed challenges and programs for Fortune 500 clients and major network reality shows such as Survivor and The Amazing Race. “It is very exciting for the marblemedia team to have Alan on board again,” said Matt Hornburg, Partner and Executive Producer, marblemedia. “Having worked on some of the most popular television series around and alongside some of the most accomplished people in the television industry, Alan brings exceptional expertise and creativity to the marblemedia team.”
TRUCE OR DARE is a docu-reality series that reunites feuding neighbours, former best friends, estranged sisters, troubled co-workers etc., and pits them together in a series of challenges as they work towards finding a resolution to their dissolved relationship.
“TRUCE OR DARE combines all the exciting and adventurous elements of a number of popular reality series with a different and interesting twist,” said Alan Bishop. “Viewers will enjoy watching the contestants attempt to resolve their conflicts and will even learn some of their own lessons for conflict resolution.”
TRUCE OR DARE contestants will square off in a series of high-stakes physical challenges to win back the relationships that were once so important. Each challenge will be designed to exploit the contestants’ strengths and weaknesses, call to mind their conflict and help them reach a peaceful resolution. The conflict resolution does not stop after the end credits; it continues online with bonus video footage, conflict resolution advice from the experts, fan forums and an application to be on the show. The first time Alan joined the marblemedia team, he was part of the incredibly popular tween competition series, The Adrenaline Project. Alan will be accompanying the marblemedia team to the Banff World Television Festival that takes place June 7-10 at the Fairmont Banff Spring Hotels.
