Mark Burnett's New Reality Show Sounds Bonkers

Will you watch?

Liz Raftery

CBS has ordered another reality show from Emmy-winning producer Mark Burnett... and this one sounds really off the wall.

The series, which is tentatively called TKO, will feature contestants running through an obstacle course one at a time, while their fellow competitors fire "over-the-top projectiles" to try to impede their progress, according to the announcement from CBS. The top two players will compete in a final showdown to win a cash prize.

The show is scheduled to premiere this summer with a 10-episode first season.

"TKO is unlike any other competition show on television. It's an obstacle course meets dodgeball. It will create amazing viral moments," Burnett said in a statement. "I've got a great history with CBS, and I'm excited to be premiering this summer."

Burnett is also the producer behind Survivor, The Voice, The Apprentice, Shark Tank, Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader?, and a number of other reality and faith-based programs.
