YouTube has ordered adventure competition series Ultimate Expedition for its subscription channel YouTube Red.
The 10-episode series, produced by Rabbit Films, takes eight celebrities with no climbing experience through the challenge of ascending Peru’s Mount Tocllaraju.
Along with tackling Mount Tocllaraju, each climber also has a personal challenge they are trying to conquer. While some of the climbers are chasing dreams, others are redefining themselves and looking for a spiritual awakening. The participants will go through a gamut of emotions: elation, anger, and even humor on their way to finding joy as they work to overcome personal obstacles.
YouTuber Jukka Hildén (pictured), hosts Ultimate Expedition, which will debut exclusively on YouTube Red in 2018. Hildén is the ringleader of The Dudesons, a Finnish stunt group.
“We’re excited to work with Jukka Hildén and Rabbit Films to bring a fresh twist to this reality competition series,” said Susanne Daniels, global head of original content, YouTube, in a statement.
