National Geographic TV has ordered a globe-trotting competition series from “Amazing Race” producers Bertram van Munster and Elise Doganieri.

“Race to the Center of the Earth” will set four teams of “adventurers” on a quest to sprint around the world on a challenging course designated by producers in the hopes of beating the others to a buoy in the middle of the ocean on which is stashed a $1 million prize. There will be no eliminations but the first team to reach the buoy gets to split the purse.

“Our goal is to create a gripping, completely real experience that pushes the edges of adventure and embeds viewers in extreme action, breathtaking drama and stunning locations as we follow four highly skilled teams on the race of a lifetime,” said Geoff Daniels, executive VP of unscripted entertainment for National Geographic Networks. “Unlike other competition formats, ‘Race to the Center’ of the Earth will combine the grittiness of a survival show with the cinematic style of a feature film action-thriller dropping viewers into the middle of a heart-pounding journey unlike anything ever made for television.”

Nat Geo is picking up a new show by Bertram and Elise called "Race to the Center of the Earth". Per the article, Four teams of "adventurers" will be racing around the world on a "challenging course" on a quest to beat the others to a buoy in the middle of the ocean and win $1 million. There aren't eliminations, but the first team to reach the buoy splits the $1 mil. Apparently, it's supposed to be sort of like a mix of a survival show and "action-thriller" race show.

Thoughts?

I'm in. With production scheduled for "later this year", of course I end up wondering about a possible TAR33. Peach had mentioned October a possibility, but this could be around that time as well.
