HBO Max has given an eight-episode order to the rock climbing competition series The Climb with Jason Momoa where a series of mental and physical challenges will be used to crown the world’s best amateur climber.
The series was developed by Momoa’s (pictured) production company On the Roam, Chris Sharma — who has been considered one of the world’s top rock climbers — and the show’s creators The Intellectual Property Corporation (IPC), which will also executive produce and handle all production services.
“It’s a dream come true to create a show with one of my idols, my good friend, and legendary climber Chris Sharma. I’m thrilled to be partnering with HBO Max and to produce alongside IPC to bring you this incredible show about my favorite sport, rock climbing,” Momoa said in a news release.
The Climb is executive produced by Eli Holzman, Aaron Saidman and Matt Shanfield from the IPC. Momoa, Brian Mendoza and James Mendoza also serve as executive producers for On the Roam, as well as Sharma and Jonathon Resteck.
On the Roam is a film, TV and brand media company led by Momoa and Brian Mendoza. In August, they’ll release the action film Sweet Girl for Netflix, and are also currently producing an unscripted series for Discovery+.
