The show, produced by Dany Garcia’s Seven Bucks Productions, Universal Television Alternative Studio, and A. Smith & Co. and Johnson, offers everyday people the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to compete in epic head-to-head challenges designed to test mind, body and heart.
Johnson said that he got the inspiration for The Titan Games from “his favorite show”, American Ninja Warrior on NBC.
“We wanted to create a new kind of athletic competition unlike anything ever attempted before,” he said. “The Titan Games will challenge competitors to succeed in ways no one thought possible while entertaining the whole world at the same time.”
In each episode, competitors will step inside an arena and put themselves to the ultimate test by facing one of six reigning Titans. If a contender can defeat one of the existing Titans, they will take their place as a member of the elite Titan group. 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.
Dwayne Johnson, Arthur Smith, Dany Garcia, Hiram Garcia, Brian Gewirtz and Toby Gorman serve as executive producers for the series.
