The CW and Tough Mudder to Launch New Series

A Group of Everyday Heroes Will Be the Focus

The CW and lifestyle brand Tough Mudder will team up to launch a new multi-platform, six-part series on digital platform CW Seed and The CW in 2017. A title and an airdate will be announced at a later time.

The logline: The series will focus on a group of “everyday heroes” who make up a team with the single purpose of coming together to accomplish completing a Tough Mudder. Deemed as “probably the toughest event on the planet,” Tough Mudder tests teamwork skills and pushes one’s physical abilities and mental grit. Shot in a documentary style, the series will feature the rawness of real human experience and the high-stakes, unscripted drama of each team members’ own personal stories as they face different obstacles and fears not only on the course, but also in life.

Episodes one through five will debut on CW Seed, while the finale, featuring the team tackling the course as they look to cross the finish line, will air on The CW. Flatbush Pictures and Judd Ehrlich (“We Could Be King,” “Finish Strong”) will serve as executive producers., along with Jesse Bull of Tough Mudder.

  1. Never heard of “Tough Mudder” which makes CW the perfect network for it since most people don’t know it exists…

    “Shot in documentary style” = we’ll shake the camera and play with the zoom until you have to go to the bathroom… 🙁
