Reality TV show “Flat Earthers” asks conspiracy theorists to prove their beliefs

A new reality series called “Flat Earthers” will pay its players cash if they can convince a panel of (actual) experts that the world is flat. Good luck with that.

IndieWire can exclusively reveal that the recently launched streaming service The Network is in active production on “Flat Earthers” and will launch all 10 episodes this December.

“Flat Earthers” is described as part docuseries, part competition show, and it will follow five families who each genuinely believe the Earth is flat.

But rather than just document their exploits, the families will each be given $50,000 worth of resources for research and will ultimately present their findings to a panel of scientists, theologians, and cartographers.

If they can convince a majority of the panelists that the Earth is in fact flat, they’ll be awarded a cash prize. The amount of the cash prize was not disclosed. It probably doesn’t even have to be decided upon.

There may not be a “winner” of the series — we’ll bet against it! — but the idea is to highlight the growing subset of Americans who believe the Earth is flat. The series aims to shed light on how theories like this gain traction in the U.S. and around the world. Mandela Effect-ers, you may want to sit this one out.

“As we continue to deliver audiences free, premium content we are excited to announce this daring and genre breaking docu-series,” Aram Rappaport, creator of The Network, said in a statement.

“The Flat Earth phenomenon continues to grow on a global level. ‘Flat Earthers’ will provide a fascinating view into the psyche of the human condition and what drives belief systems worldwide.”
