The 10-episode show features contestants negotiating obstacles while the other competitors try to knock them course and slow them down by firing over-the-top projectiles at them.

MGM will produce, with Mark Burnett, president of the television group and digital at MGM, exec producing the series alongside Barry Poznick, MGM’s president of unscripted television. TKO is based on an original format created by Steve Hughes and Sean Kelly of Shaggy Entertainment.

Sharon Vuong, senior VP of alternative programming for CBS, said Burnett was “a master” at devising competitions that “make for entertaining television.”

Burnett added that TKO was unlike any competition series on TV and would “create amazing viral moments.”
