Pennsylvania-based prodco The WorkShop is taking to the green with a fourth season of its Golf Channel hit, The Haney Project.

Recently renewed and slated to premiere in mid-February on the NBC Sports channel, the fourth season of the series, in which celebrity guests try to improve their golf games under the guidance of Tiger Woods’ former swing coach Hank Haney, will feature a creative revamp, according to WorkShop principal Steve Rotfeld (pictured, right).

“Instead of one celebrity trying to improve under Hank Haney’s tutelage, we have four,” says Rotfeld, who co-founded the prodco with Tom Farrell (left). “There will be a competitive aspect and Hank is going to oversee it.”

Sugar Ray Leonard, Adam Levine, Angie Everhart and Mario Batali have signed on to take part.

While all four celebs won’t necessarily compete against each other in each episode, Rotfeld says viewers can expect to follow the progress of at least two of the guests per episode.

Other projects on The WorkShop’s slate include a reality series on the online-only Glenn Beck Network. Independence U.S.A., which premiered in mid-January, follows the exploits of a family preparing to live off the grid in the event of a potential catastrophe. The series will run for 16 half-hours with two hour episodes.
