WHAT: Famous figures from Earth (a rotating cast of comics and actors) are reanimated by alien overlords to compete on a game show hosted by superior humans Keisha Zollar and Andrew Kimler for the right to save the universe. Created by KAZM.
The year is 2162 and the universe is in catastrophic trouble. Only the VERY best humans can save it. The Plutars, an alien race, have traveled through history to find the most impressive humans from each category (conquerors, feminists, one-term presidents, people called James, etc), reanimating the top five people - but the catch is that they can only keep one from each batch alive. The five reanimated contestants must compete in a series of challenges to decide which of them will get to live - and join the aliens in their mission of salvation.
