Dwayne Johnson teams up with American Ninja Warrior producers for new NBC series
The Rock is cooking up something new with NBC.
Dwayne Johnson’s production company, Seven Bucks Productions, will team up with A. Smith & Co. Productions, the producers of American Ninja Warrior, and Universal Television Alternative Studio (World of Dance) on The Titan Games, a new show for NBC which will feature Johnson.
The show “will offer everyday people the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to compete in epic head-to-head challenges designed to test mind, body, and heart,” according to a press release. Contestants will compete in an arena against one of six reigning “Titans,” battling to take one’s place.
Of the competition, Johnson said, “We wanted to create a new kind of athletic competition unlike anything ever attempted before. The Titan Games will challenge competitors to succeed in ways no one thought possible while entertaining the whole world at the same time.”
Johnson’s Seven Bucks co-founder and ex-wife Dany Garcia said, “With The Titan Games, we wanted to create a platform that would allow competitors of the highest caliber to be tested on multiple levels, to grow, to battle for success and ultimately be given their moment in the spotlight. We have found the perfect collaborators in NBC, Universal Television Alternative Studio, and A. Smith & Co. Productions to bring this all to life.”
