A new show is coming to CBS!

“Beyond the Edge” a new “celebrity-spinoff of Survivor”, coming to CBS sometime in Spring 2022!  :conf: :cheer: :woohoo:

--- Quote ---CBS is sending celebrities into the wild. As first reported by TMZ, the Eye network is believed to be working on a new reality series to air this spring, which Variety has learned will be titled “Beyond the Edge.” The show would pit celebs in a “Survivor”-like battle of strategy, wits and muscle.

The network is officially declining comment on the news. But the project, believed to have been shot in Bocas del Toro, Panama, in September and October this year, will — according to TMZ — feature contestants including Colton Underwood (“The Bachelor”), former NBA star Metta World Peace, former NFL star Ray Lewis, Jodie Sweetin (“Full House”), Eboni K. Williams (“Real Housewives of New York”) and model Paulina Porizkova.

Although details beyond that are slim, Variety hears that producers include Renegade 83, the company behind “Naked and Afraid.” Renegade 83’s earlier shows include “Blind Date” and “The Surreal Life” — so it knows a thing or two about “celebs” interacting and living together in close quarters.

This may be the closest thing CBS has come to producing a celebrity version of “Survivor,” although it’s clearly not that since it comes from different auspices. But the Eye network has already produced celeb versions of “Big Brother” — as a matter of fact, the next “Celebrity Big Brother” premieres in February as counterprogramming to the Olympics.

“Beyond the Edge” also sounds a bit like “I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here,” a British reality format that has been a smash hit in the U.K., but failed to catch on in the U.S. despite attempts by ABC (in 2003) and NBC (2009) to adapt the series here. (Coincidentally, CBS sued ABC in 2003 in an attempt to halt “I’m a Celebrity,” arguing that it was a rip-off of “Survivor.” But a judge ultimately allowed that show to move forward.)

 CBS today announced the new reality series BEYOND THE EDGE, which features nine celebrities trading their worlds of luxury to live in the dangerous jungles of Panama, where they face off in epic adventures and endure the most brutal conditions, as they push themselves to go far beyond their comfort zone. From the producers of “Naked and Afraid” comes the most intense celebrity adventure ever attempted, where only teamwork, perseverance and finding the inner strength they never knew they possessed can get them through another day and raise money for their chosen charities. BEYOND THE EDGE will premiere Wednesday, March 16 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network, and will be available to stream live and on demand on Paramount+*. SHOWTIME Sports announcer Mauro Ranallo hosts.

The nine celebrities who will brave the Panama jungle in BEYOND THE EDGE are country superstar Lauren Alaina, Super Bowl MVP Ray Lewis, country superstar Craig Morgan, NBA champion Metta World Peace, supermodel Paulina Porizkova, NFL legend Mike Singletary, actress Jodie Sweetin (“Full House,” “Fuller House”) and television personalities Colton Underwood (“The Bachelor”) and Eboni K. Williams (“The Real Housewives of New York City”).

For two weeks, the celebrities will see if they have the grit to withstand torrential downpours, scorching heat and deadly wildlife while living in the exotic Panama jungle. There won’t be any judges or eliminations – instead, each celebrity must rely on their inner fortitude, physical ability, and courage, and have faith in their teammates to endure in the wild. For each day they last, and every grueling adventure challenge they win with their team, the celebrities will raise more money for their charities. If a player reaches their breaking point, they can ring a bell to signal that they are ready to go home. At the end of the 14 days, the top two earners will go head to head in one final adventure, to see who can become the BEYOND THE EDGE champion and take home the most money for their charity.

“BEYOND THE EDGE is the most extreme celebrity format ever attempted,” said executive producer Greg Goldman. “The day before we started principal photography, all of the producers looked at each other with the sinking feeling that this celebrity cast might see where they were living for up to two weeks – the harsh jungles of Panama – and just bolt. To the contrary, we were amazed by how these icons pushed themselves to their breaking points, showing incredible mental fortitude and physical tenacity. And all for an incredible cause: to raise money for charities that are near and dear to their hearts.”


Mauro Ranallo, Host

BEYOND THE EDGE is hosted by SHOWTIME Sports announcer Mauro Ranallo, who made history as the first sports broadcaster ever to call every major combat sport on national television: boxing, kickboxing, MMA and professional wrestling.
