Janelle James is outchea winning!

The star of ABC’s breakout comedy hit, “Abbott Elementary,” star is deepening her relationship with the Disney-owned network by hosting “The Final Straw,” a new game show executive produced by NFL legend Peyton Manning.

The stakes are high as four teams of colorful contestants face off to combat tremendous tipping towers. Each life-sized themed tower is chock full of various objects ranging from basketballs to small kitchen appliances as contestants try to successfully pull items from the stack without tipping it over in order to earn prizes. 

If the tower falls, the team is eliminated; and the last team standing will compete against The Mega Stack, an epic battle of physics where the odds are literally stacked against them, in hopes of winning a life-changing grand prize of up to $250,000 with the option to walk away or risk it all.

Rob Mills, executive vice president, Unscripted and Alternative Entertainment, Walt Disney Television said: 

‘The Final Straw’ is a fresh and exciting format that you truly have not seen anywhere else. It’s a simple concept with big visuals that is sure to keep audiences on their toes and entertain families all summer long.

With Janelle’s spot-on comedic timing and Peyton’s knack for competition, we have the perfect duo to launch ABC’s newest unscripted series.

Janelle James gushed: 

I’m thrilled to be part of a series that is as silly and fun as I am.

I’m looking forward to this opportunity to grow my relationship with ABC with my second comedy project on the network.

Peyton Manning added: 

In my 18 seasons in the NFL, I have learned there is no better formula for success than a strategic plan and good teamwork.

Both will be required in ‘The Final Straw’ as teams from across America execute their playbook to keep their towers standing!

The game show is set to premiere on July 10.
