ABC has recently ordered a new series to start production, and already it’s receiving great compliments; it’s being called The Amazing Race 2.0!
ABC has ordered production on Expedition Impossible, a global competition series from executive producer Mark Burnett (Survivor), the network announced this Thursday.
Though some bits and pieces of the show can be compared to The Amazing Race, unlike the show, which has teams of two, Expedition Impossible will follow teams of three solving problems as they race around the world. The series harkens back to the Eco-Challenge, a multi-day expedition competition created by Burnett that launched on MTV in 1995 before landing at USA and earning an Emmy nomination in 2000.
“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,” Burnett said in a statement.
Casting is currently underway for the series.
