    A coalition of TV networks and producers have been quietly developing a reality TV version of The Hunger Games, which is expected to premiere in 2013 and be broadcast 24/7 for at least eight weeks on Fox, ABC, CBS, TLC, MTV, and ABC Family. While the dystopian novels feature teenagers fighting to the death, the reality series will allow them to fight violently until they knock their opponents unconscious for at least an hour using weapons such as tasers, blow darts with poison tips, and knives designed to create superficial wounds. The winner will receive $1 million.

    Survivor producers will serve as gamemakers, because of the show’s reputation for its high quality and its similarity to the Hunger Games competition itself. All six networks will simulcast a three-hour prime-time episode every night, and trade off broadcasting live footage from the arena during the day, sparing them the need to create new or innovative programming for a significant period of time.

    This could be epic---or a total fail
