Not something you’d normally see in the “Help Wanted” section of the paper, but Zone Laser Tag has recently been contracted by Hollywood bigwigs Matt Damon, Ben Affleck, Adaptive Studios and Pilgrim Media to seek out young adult laser tag players for an upcoming TV series, The Runner.
The studios are looking for fit, independent players who are willing to participate in the series, which looks for Runners and Chasers who will compete around the country to get to (or protect) an undisclosed city. The runner is hunted by groups of chasers (à la the old cross-country running game, Fugitive) and attempts to use strategy and subtlety to make it to their destination.
Zone Laser Tag was sought out because its products appeal to adult, action-oriented game enthusiasts, who are the perfect demographic for the series. According to Zone, it has more adult players than any other supplier. It has also had several products featured on many TV shows in the past.
