ABC Family has picked up new game show Spell-Mageddon, adding the hour-long series to its expanding summer lineup.

Spell-Mageddon puts contestants in a spelling bee where they will have to spell increasingly difficult words while dealing with distractions. The series is executive-produced by Adam Reed, Adam Freeman and Leslie Greif of Thinkfactory Media.

Spell-Mageddon, premiering July 24 at 9 p.m., joins ABC Family's other new summer reality fare Dancing Fools and The Vineyard, as well as dramas Chasing Life, The Fosters and Twisted.
