The Conclave

Father, forgive me, for this was a parody screaming to be done.

From the people who brought you “Who Wants to Marry a Millionaire”, Fox presents the reality show event of the season: The Conclave. 117 cardinals forced to live together in Santa Marta for up to twelve days until one of them is given the ultimate title – Pope. Feel the tension every night as the ballots cast at the Sistine Chapel are burned. Will the smoke be black, telling the world that they have not yet come to an agreement? Or will it be white, signaling the beginning of a new era?

As the cardinals quietly contemplate which of them will become the next Bishop of Rome, alliances will form – and fracture. Will the Americans stick together? Will Italy regain the Papacy? Will there finally be a non-white at the head of Catholic Church? How will each candidate handle the legacy of John Paul the II? And what will the winner have to do with olives?

Join us starting on April 18 as we bring you this once-in-a-lifetime event. Who will be the next Pope? Find out on… The Conclave.

Maybe there will even be a water-skiing contest.
