ABC ANNOUNCES "EXPEDITION IMPOSSIBLE"
New Global Competition Series from Executive Producer Mark Burnett
Casting Underway for Contestants to Compete in the Greatest Adventure of Their Lives
ABC has announced "Expedition Impossible," the next evolution in high adventure and human drama. The series will feature teams of ordinary people doing the extraordinary as they compete in the biggest adventure of their lives.
In "Expedition Impossible," teams of three will solve problems while racing across deserts, over mountains and through rivers. Each week a new stage of the expedition will be revealed. Will teams crumble under the pressure of having to think clearly in the wilds of the great outdoors, or will they work together to get through and complete their adventures? After ten stunning legs of competition, one team will cross the finish line first to claim victory.
"We think the ABC audience will respond to this incredibly fun show, which is equal parts extreme competition, teamwork and strategy, featuring unique landscapes and different cultures," said John Saade and Vicki Dummer, senior vice presidents, Alternative Series, Specials and Late Night, ABC Entertainment Group. "We look forward to collaborating again with Mark Burnett and his team to create an epic series."
"I love high adventure television, and I am so excited to be working with ABC in bringing an epic 'Indiana Jones'-style experience to the viewers," said executive producer Mark Burnett.
