Popular Olympic Sport to Get Its Own Reality Show Deadline

A popular Olympic sport is getting its own reality show, with ABC picking up what's considered to be television's first diving reality competition show, reports Deadline.com.

ABC ordered the project straight to series. Called "Celebrity Splash," the show will feature celebrities performing high dives, which get more complicated each week with feats such as backflips and somersaults, the story notes.

The project is based on a Dutch format that was a breakout hit in that country, the article adds.
