    Teams find themselves among thousands of retired aircraft in the sprawling landscape of the Southern Arizona desert. Shot in the daytime, teams don't have to have their blindfolds removed to feel the pressure—and the heat—when the escape begins. If they can keep their cool while sprinting between mental and physical challenges and dodging the guards' roving Humvees, they might be able to fly to freedom.

    Previously on The Great Escape Season 1 Episode 4 "Escape From Titan Missile Silo", Teams try to break free from a secret missile silo deep below the Arizona desert, escaping through a tangle of cableways and portals.

    On this week's Episode title "Escape From Air Force Boneyard", Teams find themselves among thousands of retired aircraft in the sprawling landscape of the Southern Arizona desert. Shot in the daytime, teams don't have to have their blindfolds removed to feel the pressure—and the heat—when the escape begins. If they can keep their cool while sprinting between mental and physical challenges and dodging the guards' roving Humvees, they might be able to fly to freedom.

    Hosted by Rich Eisen (NFL Total Access), The Great Escape 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.

    “The Great Escape is a fast-paced series with all the heart-pounding excitement and nail-biting suspense of a summer popcorn movie,” said Michael Wright, executive vice president, head of programming for TNT, TBS and Turner Classic Movies (TCM). “This is exactly the kind of fun, smart, unscripted competition show we've been looking for to complement TNT's entertaining lineup of scripted dramas.”

    Produced by Ron Howard, Brian Grazer, and the people behind The Amazing Race, THE GREAT ESCAPE is a reality show in which a trio of two-person teams compete to see which can first break out of a famous locale, such as Alcatraz, or the USS Hornet. The teams start out in a locked room or cell that they must escape, then are led through a series of four challenges that will net them four pieces of a key, all the while trying to evade capture by prowling guards. If teams are captured by the guards, they are locked up again and must escape to continue with their challenges. When teams have gotten all four pieces of the key, they find host Rich Eisen, who is waiting with a locked box containing $100,000. The first team that reaches Eisen with the key wins. The others go home empty-handed.

    Stealthy escapes are a staple of action movies, and there's a reason why: it's exciting to watch people creeping past guards and solving clever puzzles. Even real people are fun to watch -- like the contestants on The Great Escape, who are always pairs of familiars: married couples, family members, friends. Each team explains why they want the Great Escape winnings, which adds a little pathos to the proceedings when you see people who obviously need the money struggling so hard to get it.

    But there's not that much time to get to know the contestants, since each week features three new pairs, so the focus is rightfully on the action. There's plenty of it. Contestants have to solve puzzles, follow maps, use compasses, find keys cleverly taped to the insides of old guitars or pushed into a bar of soap. Then they have to sneak past guards with flashlights, tiptoeing past, clinging to walls. When they're captured by the guards, a loudspeaker blares out "Green team, captured" in a cool robotic voice. It's almost as exciting as a sci-fi movie like Escape from New York, or the other Great Escape, even though the stakes are a lot lower. Fans of reality adventure shows should, and probably will, tune to this in droves.
