CBS has ordered a new competition series and will be conducting a nationwide casting search in November. The series, “Tough as Nails,” has a 10 episode order.
The network says the show “throws the spotlight on real people who are real tough in real life, as a result of their physically demanding everyday jobs.”
The show comes from Emmy Award-winning producer Phil Keoghan (“The Amazing Race”) and his producing partner, Louise Keoghan. Phil Keoghan will also host the program.
Participants will be tested for strength, endurance, agility and mental toughness in challenges that take place in the real world.
“The series will redefine what it means to be tough, proving that it comes in all shapes and sizes, and will celebrate Americans who roll up their sleeves 24/7 and don’t think twice about working long hard hours and getting their hands dirty, in order to keep their country running,” CBS says.
