Washington, May 11 : American pop singer-songwriter Justin Timberlake is to add another achievement to his portfolio by producing a television show for MTV.
Timberlake will be working on a new reality game show called The Phone, which will have each show beginning with two hidden mobile phones ringing at opposite ends of a city.
People who answer the phone will be given five seconds to decide if they want to play for a chance to win cash prize. Once they decide to play they are given a mission to complete, to win the prize.
MTV revealed that The Phone would be reminiscent of films such as The Bourne Identity and The Game.
"Genre-busting and reinvention is at the core of what we do, and The Phone does just that," Contactmusic quoted Tony Disanto, MTV executive vice president of programming and series development, as saying.
"Each week will be an action-packed mini-movie," he added.
Timberlake has always been successful right from the time he was a part of boy band N*Sync, and he has gained further success with his solo career as well as acting roles in films including Alpha Dog, Southland Tales and Shrek the Third.
He currently holds the number one spot in the UK singles chart with Madonna for their song 4 Minutes.
