THE ROCK REVEALS NEW NBC SERIES

By Mike Johnson & Paul Jordan on 2018-02-05 09:26:00

During his post-Super Bowl appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson announced plans for a new NBC reality-competition series Titan Games.

Produced by The Rock's Seven Bucks Productions and A. Smith & Company (the company behind American Ninja Warrior, which at one point had been exploring a potential series with Jeff Jarrett's Global Force Wrestling), the series will take inspiration from ANW as well as American Gladiators in terms of its competition events, following normal everyday Americans as they compete in challenges that affect the mind, body and heart. 

The first season has been picked up for 10 episodes.

On his Twitter account, Johnson stated he was, "Creating a platform where I put the spotlight where it belongs...on the ones who accept the challenge of a lifetime."

Official promotional material for the series notes, "In each episode, competitors from across America will step inside an arena and put themselves to the ultimate test by facing one of six reigning Titans. If a contender can defeat one of the existing Titans, they will take their place as a member of the elite Titan group. Once one becomes a Titan, they will need to be victorious every week to remain at the top. The season finale will end with an epic battle where the Titans compete against one another in hopes to become the last male and female standing."

The first promotional spot for the series was released last night as part of the appearance:
