I'll admit, I'm a sucker for themed reality game shows. I loved The Mole (conspiracy/espionage), Murder in Small Town X (police procedural), and Pirate Master (errr...pirates). (And, although not a "game show," The Colony's post-apocalyptic angle fascinated me.) With the proliferation of reality shows nowadays, I had wondered why no one had yet tapped into the "fantasy world" genre. Well, looks like that's exactly what's coming to U.S. television in a few short weeks. The Quest will premiere July 31 on ABC. Here's the description of the show:
Announcing "The Quest," a reality show that
literally takes contestants and audiences to an amazing, imaginative realm,
where the ogres are advancing in the woods, the dragons are stirring, agents of
a dark lord are infiltrating the keep, and the only thing that stands between
peace and chaos are 12 very unlikely heroes. From the producers of "The
Lord of the Rings" trilogy, paired with the producers of "The Amazing
Race," "The Quest" is a fully immersive experience. In and around
this castle, our fantasy realm comes to life with state-of-the art projections,
animatronics, prosthetics, real-time motion capture and art direction. The
narrative and mythology of "The Quest" is deep and fully imagined,
and it was designed to incorporate seamlessly with the unexpected actions and
decisions of our contestants – fantasy comes alive as it never has before in
this genre-bending series.
Gotta admit I'm intrigued enough to tune in for the first episode. Here's the trailer for the show:
