NBCUniversal-owned net Oxygen Media will test the bonds of friendship in its latest competition series The Battle of the Ex-Besties.
Produced by Fly On The Wall Entertainment, the series follows fourteen former best friends who are forced to confront past differences for the chance to win a grand prize of US$100,000.
Hosted by Sibley Scoles, the series will put seven pairs of frenemies under the same roof while pushing them to revisit their pasts to overcome a variety of challenges. Teams that lose a challenge will have the option to compete for $50,000 or leave the competition for good. Two consecutive losses, meanwhile, will result in a straight elimination.
“Viewers are thrust into these relationships that are already at their lowest points, opening the door for a number of possibilities for their friendships,” said Rod Aissa, executive VP of original programming and development for Oxygen Media, in a statement. “By adding a grand prize to the emotionally and physically-demanding experience, we are tapping into the drama that our audience loves.”
The Battle of the Ex-Besties is slated to premiere across Oxygen on Dec. 6 at 11 p.m. ET/PT.
