A. Smith & Co. Productions has entered into an IP partnership with indie video game company Imangi Studios to develop a live-action reality competition series based on the mobile app game Temple Run.
The series will give contestants the chance to run the course in real life, where they’ll be met with “wonder, adventure, surprising twists and challenging obstacles.”
Additional details, including the distributor attached, are expected to be announced at a later date.
“Temple Run is one of the most recognizable mobile games in the world and we have big plans to bring the global phenomenon to life,” Arthur Smith, chairman of A. Smith & Co. Productions, said in a statement.
“We will bring our keen eye and passion for unscripted content to create a competition where, just like the beloved game, speed, agility and quick decision-making are key.”
“Our team is always looking for ways to elevate our IP into exciting new formats,” Walter Devins, CEO of Imangi Studios, added. “A. Smith & Co. creates epic shows that inspire people to push their limits to reach greatness, and we can’t wait to see them do the same with ‘Temple Run.’”
A. Smith & Co. Productions is behind such unscripted fare as NBC’s American Ninja Warrior, Peacock’s American Ninja Warrior Junior, NBC’s The Titan Games and Fox’s Mental Samurai.
