Dwayne Johnson is definitely one of if not THE hardest working man in show business right now. He is on pace to have an extremely busy 2018 with three movies on the way Rampage, Skyscraper and the Disney film Jungle Cruise. Now he can add a hosting and executive producing a new 10-episode athletic competition called The Titan Games to his always growing resume.
Johnson announced the new show during an appearance on the Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon. Johnson alongside Media Mogul, Chairwoman, and IFBB Pro Dany Garcia will serve as executive producers of the show. Johnson will also serve as the show’s master of ceremonies.
Here is the official synopsis of the show as explained in the press release:
“The 10-episode series from Universal Television Alternative Studio (“World of Dance”), A. Smith & Co. Productions (“American Ninja Warrior”) and Seven Bucks Productions (“Rock the Troops”) 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.”
“Inspired by Johnson’s desire to motivate global audiences to reach their potential for greatness, the competition welcomes men and women who are strong enough to believe in themselves and simultaneously confident enough to test their own abilities by taking on physical challenges of epic proportions. “The Titan Games” will not only test the competitors’ physical strength but also their mental and emotional endurance. Taking place in a thrilling arena, determination will be rewarded as a new breed of heroes will emerge.”
“In each episode, competitors from across America will step inside an electrifying arena and put themselves to the ultimate test by facing one of six reigning Titans. They will battle their opponents in remarkable feats that will require both mental stamina and physical strength. If a contender can defeat one of the existing Titans, they will take their place as a member of the elite Titan group. However, winning is just the start in this arena. 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.”
