"The Great Escape" (TV show) is an action-packed reality competition series on TNT that is hosted by Rich Eisen ("NFL Total Access"). The series drops teams of ordinary people into the middle of their own epic action/adventure movie. Each week, three pairs of players will compete for a cash prize by escaping from such locations as a seven-story castle, a deserted island, a sinking ship or a maximum security prison. Players must use their wits, skills and whatever tools they can find to overcome obstacles, evade pursuers and make their way to freedom.

TNT's "The Great Escape" (TV show) is produced by Fox Television Studios, Imagine Entertainment, The Hochberg Ebersol Company and Profiles Television Productions, with Ron Howard ("A Beautiful Mind"), Brian Grazer ("24"), Francie Calfo ("Scoundrels"), Elise Doganieri ("The Amazing Race"), Bertram van Munster ("The Amazing Race"), Justin Hochberg and Charlie Ebersol serving as executive producers.
