Fox has set a late February premiere date for its latest competition series, Mental Samurai.
Hosted and produced by Rob Lowe (pictured), Mental Samurai focuses on challenges that push human intelligence and mental agility.
In each episode, contestants must answer questions accurately with speed and precision on an obstacle course designed for the mind. Participants must answer questions in categories of knowledge, memory, puzzles and sequencing while being physically transported around the set at high speeds in a capsule.
The series is produced by A. Smith & Co. Productions, Warner Horizon Unscripted & Alternative Television and Apploff Entertainment. Arthur Smith, Toby Gorman, Jeff Apploff and Noah Bonnett serve as executive producers on the series.
Mental Samurai premieres on Fox starting Feb. 26 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
News of the upcoming series was first announced this past August during Fox’s Television Critics Association summer tour.
