Netflix continues to broaden its horizons into what would've previously been traditional TV fare with a new series from Sylvester Stallone. The Oscar winner (and recent nominee for Creed) has a history of producing reality TV, with the boxing show The Contender.
Ultimate Beastmaster will see 9 countries from around the world competing with each other in a specifically designed obstacle course. Each country will have its own host, with the US getting Brooklyn Nine-Nine star and all round buff sort, Terry Crews. Brazil will have UFC legend, Anderson Silva.
Behold, a press release below.
"The 10-episode event series will feature 108 competitors, 18 from each country [United States, Brazil, South Korea, Mexico, Germany, and Japan], in total. Each hour-long episode will feature 12 competitors, two from each country, who will take their shot at running one of the most physically demanding obstacle courses ever devised, “The Beast.” At the end of each episode, a ‘Beastmaster’ will be crowned and in the final episode of the season, the nine individual winners from each episode will compete against each other for the chance for one contestant to become the Ultimate Beastmaster."
So Tough Mudder on steroids by the sounds of it, which could be fun. We all remember Gladiators from back in the day as a distinct part of our childhoods.
