There are a lot of things people can do—or not do—when they are told not to do them for a chance to win $100,000.

That’s the premise of ABC’s new summer game show, Don’t, hosted by Adam Scott (Parks and Recreation, Big Little Lies) and executive produced by Ryan Reynolds (Deadpool).

“I’m excited for people to see ‘Don’t’ and feel we made the right call in changing what was the working title: ‘Please Do Not,’” said Scott in a statement.

In each episode, members of a four-person team strive to accomplish various challenges, such as “Don’t Blink,” “Don’t Look Back” and “Don’t Play Ball in the House,” as they work together.

Along the way, each team will have the choice to take risks by pushing the Don’t Push Button or taking a chance on a Don’t You Dare, You.

In the end, whatever money they have left in their bank – if anything – is theirs to keep. The series (and the above trailer, which is accompanied by Queen’s “Don’t Stop Me Now”) is voiced by Reynolds (of course) and features unexpected moments that break from the traditional game-show format.

Produced by Banijay Studios North America, Don’t is executive produced by Reynolds, David Goldberg, Caroline Baumgard, David Hurwitz, Conrad Green and George Dewey. The format is distributed internationally by Banijay Rights.
