Hmm, I'm not quite sure this is high-brow enough for propertyprof. But ... sci-fi channel is bringing us a new original series, "Estate of Panic." According to the sci-fi channel's website:
There's no place like this home. Estate of Panic turns nightmares into reality and pushes phobias to the limit.
Each week, a new group of contestants enter the estate searching for money hidden inside of booby-trapped rooms. The walls in one cave in, creating a hopelessly small space. Can the contestants survive it? Then thousands of creepy, crawling bugs line the walls and floor of another room, and flooding water rises by the second in another.
Throughout it all, contestants must remain calm because if they panic, they won't get paid.
The game begins with seven contestants who compete in three nerve-wracking challenges. After each challenge two are eliminated and their winnings are added back into the prize pot. The last person standing faces a final challenge in the Vault Room.
I've got to think that there's a place for this in trusts and estates class. I'm just not sure where it fits.
