The Dark Overlord is back: The hacker who previously leaked almost the entire 5th season of Netflix’s “Orange Is the New Black” targeted ABC with a new leak Sunday night, apparently releasing eight episodes of the network’s still-unaired show “Steve Harvey’s Funderdome” on The Pirate Bay.
“Time to play another round,” the hacker wrote in a note accompanying the release. “We’re following through on our threats as we always do.” The Dark Overlord first threatened to target Disney-owned ABC this past Friday.
“If you prefer your meat bloody, we’re serving it bloody as can be,” the note continued. “We’re bringing another piece from the world of unaired mainstream media content.”
“Steve Harvey’s Funderdome” is scheduled to premiere on ABC on June 11. The show, which is an MGM Television production that counts Mark Burnett as one of its executive producers, has two entrepreneurs pitching their ideas to a studio audience. Said audience gets to vote on the winner, who then receives seed funding for their business.
Variety wasn’t immediately able to verify the authenticity of the leak. However, details on The Pirate Bay show that the upload consisted of a total of eight video files, with names suggesting that the files are the first eight episodes of the show.
