USA Network has picked up Cannonball,” a competition series that pits contestants against some of the highest, fastest and wettest challenges ever created, for a cash prize. The 10-episode series, based on the Talpa format, is produced by ITV Entertainment and will premiere in 2020.
The logline: Each episode of “Cannonball” features 16 larger-than-life personalities willing to jump into the deep end and compete in four rounds of physical challenges – from the speed slide Mega-Ramp to a thrilling Drop Tower to the explosive Air Cannon and more. Each round eliminates more hopefuls, until finally one champion remains.
“Cannonball” is produced by Talpa Media USA and ITV Entertainment, based on the original format by MasMedia B.V. and licensed by Talpa Global B.V. The series was created by John de Mol, who serves as executive producer along with Shye Sutherland, Keith Geller, Bernie Schaeffer and Stijn Bakkers.
