FOX is presenting the ultimate celebrity social experiment, Special Forces: The Ultimate Test (Working Title), an all-new series in which household names endure some of the harshest, most grueling challenges from the playbook of the actual Special Forces selection process.
There are no votes, and no eliminations – just survival. These celebrities, who are so used to being in the spotlight, quickly learn the meaning of “no guts, no glory” – and no glam. The series debuts in January 2023.
The 16 celebrity recruits include Danny Amendola, Mel B, Hannah Brown, Tyler Florence, Kate Gosselin, Dwight Howard, Montell Jordan, Gus Kenworthy, Nastia Liukin, and Carli Lloyd.
Also on board are Beverley Mitchell, Kenya Moore, Mike Piazza, Dr. Drew Pinsky, Anthony Scaramucci and Jamie Lynn Spears.
“Special Forces: The Ultimate Test puts celebrities you know and love through the most pure and authentic test of endurance that I have ever seen. In many ways, it is more about mental strength than physical strength,” said Rob Wade, President, Alternative Entertainment & Specials.
“It’s an eye-opening glimpse into the most intense training in the world and gives a taste of the grit and bravery our armed forces show on a daily basis, which was a life-changing experience for these celebrities.”
The series is based on Channel 4’s SAS: Who Dares Wins.
The series, which will debut in January 2023, was filmed in Jordan over the summer. It is produced by Minnow Films, the British production company behind the original C4 series, and exec produced by Sophie Leonard, Alicia Kerr, Becky Clarke and its been produced by Minnow Films and line Produced by Parag Sankhe.
