Hmm, perhaps that could be the source for a new reality based program?
12 programmers are locked in an office building.
Each week they're given a different programming assignment.
They'll have to compete to finish their tasks before an arbitrary deadline.
They'll learn how to scrounge food from the vending machines.
At the end of each show a group of managers will vote on which programmer to fire.
