CBS today announced premiere dates for its summer schedule, including the obstacle course challenge TKO: TOTAL KNOCK OUT hosted by global superstar Kevin Hart.
The new show, beginning Wednesday, July 11 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT), CBS will present a remarkable new obstacle course challenge hosted by Kevin Hart, TKO: TOTAL KNOCK OUT from executive producer Mark Burnett. The game features one player racing through daunting obstacles while the other contestants are determined to knock them off course with huge projectiles.
The 10-episode hourlong series formerly known as TKO features one player racing through daunting obstacles while four other contestants are manning battle stations along the course, firing over-the-top projectiles in an attempt to knock them off and slow them down. It’s an “us versus them” scenario, with the top two players advancing to the final showdown to face off for a cash prize.
“This show is perfectly aligned with my global brand,” Hart said. “The minute Mark Burnett pitched me, I got it and we decided to work together. This show has the potential to make me look tall.”
