Mattel Working To Finally Televise Uno
Just when you thought the intensity of Uno couldn't get any fiercer than Uno Extreme, Mattel is now teaming with The Gurin Company to bring the thrills of colors, numbers, and picking up and laying down cards to TV with an Uno series.
Despite the inherent narrative possibilities, the series would apparently be a game show, and would come as both a daily $100k prize version and an hour-long primetime edition offering a $1 million jackpot. Confirming that we're indeed talking about fucking million-dollar game of Uno here, Deadline adds that the show will have contestants "match colors, numbers and wits for a shot at a big cash prize -- but only if they play their cards right." (That last bit is a reference to how this will involve people literally playing with Uno cards, on television.) Hopefully they'll use the Ryan Reynolds Green Lantern deck. I've always considered that one to be canon.
