NBC has inked a deal with Thom Beers (creator of cable's Ice Road Truckers and Deadliest Catch) and producing partners Gail Berman and Lloyd Braun to develop a three-hour block of action-adventure/reality programming.

The order for each of the three series is 10 episodes, and while the exact programs have yet to be determined - all parties are currently sifting through a dozen different ideas - it is believed they will be in the same vein as Truckers and Catch. The consensus is that the block would air Friday or Saturday, or perhaps even Sunday following football.
