In addition, Wild ‘N Out is going to debut an interactive digital special in partnership with a technology platform, Stage TEN. The special will be an hour long and will allow fans to connect with the cast through posting real-time comments during the show. They’ll also get involved by casting votes live during gameplay at, which will help to crown the winning team.

Each episode of the show will see Team Evolution and Team Revolution go head-to-head for hilarious battles, with Cannon leading Team Revolution and a special guest who’ll appear in virtual fashion via hologram leading Team Evolution. Each of the battles lead up to the intense “Wildstyle battle” that will determine who wins and gets to claim the WnO Chain aka the Million Dollar Comedy Chain. The episodes will conclude with an exclusive Wild ‘N Out: In The Dark performance.
