ABC has ordered a physical comedy set as part of its latest unscripted summer lineup.
The Disney-owned network ordered The final straw, which comes from B17 Entertainment, the company behind Netflix’s Nicholas Cage History of swear words and HBO Max Craftopia.

The series will join ABC’s game show lineup on Sunday, July 10 alongside Celebrity family feud and The $100,000 pyramid.
It comes amid a slew of renewals and promotions for the network.
The final straw sees four teams of competitors go head-to-head to battle huge tilting towers. Each life-size themed tower is filled with a variety of objects ranging from basketballs to small kitchen appliances as contestants attempt to successfully remove objects from the pile without knocking them over in order to win prizes. If the tower falls, the team is eliminated and the last team standing will take on The Mega Stack, an epic physics battle where the odds are literally stacked against them, in hopes of winning a life-changing grand prize.
It is produced by B17 Entertainment in association with Walt Disney Television’s new alternative production unit. Brien Meagher, Rhett Bachner and Sarah Happel Jackson are executive producers and Keith Geller is showrunner and executive producer.
