American broadcaster NBC has teamed with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Dany Garcia to produce a physical competition series that will feature Johnson as host and EP.

The Titan Games will offer contestants the opportunity to compete in head-to-head challenges.

The 10-episode series from Universal Television Alternative Studio, A. Smith & Co. Productions and Seven Buck Productions intends to test competitors’ physical, mental and emotional endurance.

In each episode, competitors from across the U.S. will step inside an arena and face one of six reigning Titans. If a contender can defeat one of the existing Titans, they will take their place as a member of the elite Titan group. However, once one of the challengers becomes a Titan, they will need to be victorious every week to remain at the top.

The season finale will have the Titans compete against one another in hopes to become the last male and female standing.

“Dwayne’s passion and drive for excellence, coupled with his inherent knowledge of all things physical, make him uniquely qualified to partner with us for The Titan Games,” said Paul Telegdy, president, alternative and reality group, NBC Entertainment.

“As master of ceremonies, Dwayne’s contagious and uplifting energy will motivate and inspire our competitors as they get their own moments in the sun and unearth their inner champions,” added Meredith Ahr, president, Universal Television Alternative Studio.

Dwayne Johnson, Arthur Smith, Dany Garcia, Hiram Garcia, Brian Gewirtz and Toby Gorman will serve as executive producers for the series.
