Space invites viewers into the world of the unknown with two new hair-raising series premieres, including the bone-chilling and innovative Original Reality Series PANIC BUTTON. Premiering Tuesday, April 30 at 10 p.m. ET, PANIC BUTTON challenges a group of courageous participants to overcome their greatest fear as they brave an elaborate maze that puts them face-to-face with what terrifies them the most, including confinement, fear of the unknown, snakes, spiders, rats, and cockroaches. Shot in Toronto’s west end in an abandoned slaughterhouse, the ever-changing labyrinth that participants must tackle is customized for each person, and only some will make it to the end without hitting their panic button.
