Get your A-game on, because what we think could be one of the hottest event of 2012 will be Escape Routes, a new online interactive reality series, featuring the all-new 2013 Ford Escape and six two-person teams, competing in physical and virtual challenges! Ford is currently casting those two-person teams, who will use Escapes to travel across the country and solve various challenges in real time while a social circle of friends, fans and followers play along virtually. Every week, the teams will arrive in a new city to partake in spontaneous adventures and interactive social gaming. Escape Routes will begin in March.
Weekly episodes will launch on multiple distribution platforms to show highlights from each adventure. Additionally, short-form vignettes will promote the show and drive consumers to the deeper online/mobile platform. Each day, followers can tune into the live-streaming feed that allows them to become participants and impact the outcome of the program through a series of interactive challenges.
Each team will have its own personal content creator selected from blogging networks. This person will be embedded with Escape Routes and capture exclusive behind-the-scenes content that will be distributed through his or her social graph as well as other earned and owned platforms.
For six weeks, teams will be in front of the camera, battling it out for cash and prizes. Think you’ve got the driving chops, killer instincts and spirited enthusiasm needed to not only compete but to win? Bring it!

Ford has teamed up with Emmy-winning reality producers for Escape Routes, and it’s expected to be even bigger and more through-the-roof than last year’s wildly popular online competition series, Ford Focus Rally America!
