Mix Survivor with The Amazing Race and you get Kicking and Screaming, a new show from Fox that features 10 survivalists teaming up with 10 pampered individuals for a tense race through the wilderness.

Matt Kunitz, whose past credits include work on Wipeout and The Real World, will produce. “I’ve always been fascinated by the survival space, so I am excited to infuse a touch of comedy into a traditionally dramatic genre and get to do it on Fox, the home of competition reality series,” Kunitz said in a statement.
