Watch Ultimate Beastmaster trailer: Netflix’s first competition series
Netflix is kicking off its worldwide reality show Ultimate Beastmaster this Friday, and here is a taster of what’s to come in the epic new series.
The streaming service’s first competition series will see 108 contestants take on a colossal 600-foot-long obstacle course named “The Beast” in a battle to achieve “fame, fortune and glory”.
The series premieres on February 24 and will be released in six different versions worldwide, tailored to local audiences in the U.s., Brazil, South Korea, Mexico, Germany and Japan. Each edition will include commentary from local hosts, with Brooklyn Nine-Nine‘s Terry Crews and Fox Sports host Charissa Thompson presenting the American show.
“Man against machine.
“The world is a stage, and you have countries and nations and people and cultures competing against one another.”
David Broome, who is producing alongside Stallone, reckons the reality show will be a total “game-changer”. He said: “I believe this will be a game-changer within the industry.
“It’s not just that it’s the first reality competition for Netflix, this is a reality competition filmed at a scope, scale and creative design that is tailor-made for a global platform like Netflix.”
Ultimate Beastmaster is available to stream February 24 on Netflix.
