Would you take the call?

As the trailer shows, MTV's new reality show The Phone, from executive producer Justin Timberlake, thrusts contestants into a heart-stopping action adventure worthy of a summer blockbuster.

In six, hour-long episodes, a mysterious stranger on the phone invites four strangers into the dangerous game. If they accept, they're paired into two teams and dared to perform physical and mental challenges reminiscent of Matt Damon's The Bourne Identity or Shia LaBeouf's Eagle Eye.

According to MTV, which will premiere Timberlake's The Phone on April 21 at 10 p.m., the tasks range from "hanging off the edge of Seattle's Space Needle to racing into a burning building to save a man's life."

To win the prize of $50,000, says the network, "the player's loyalty, courage and morality are tested and their true nature is exposed when a surprise and shocking twist is revealed at the end of the game."
