Le Jeu de la Mort (The Game of Death) is a French television documentary that was broadcast by the French public television channel France 2. The documentary centers around a conduction of the Milgram experiment in a game show-like setting, encouraging subjects to administer increasingly stronger electric shocks to trained actors posing as contestants as punishment for incorrect answers, encouraged to do so by the host and audience.[1]

The documentary was presented as a social commentary on the effects of humiliation in reality television and obeying orders, and its broadcast was followed by a studio discussion on the programme.[2]
