Let’s face it -- you love NBC’s American Ninja Warrior but you have one serious gripe: there’s just not enough of it!
So here’s good news for ANW fans: USA Network will premiere a new series this spring -- American Ninja Warrior: Ninja Vs. Ninja!
The new hour-long spin-off will pit three-person athletic teams against one another on physically demanding, side-by-side obstacle courses that test endurance and speed. Hosted by comedian Matt Iseman and former NFL player Akbar Gbajabiamila, the show will feature even more challenging obstacles than in the past, incorporating speed, human agility, skill, and a whole new strategy of racing.
The upcoming 16-part season will feature some of the biggest names from the primetime American Ninja Warrior franchise competing together to become the ultimate champions. In addition to hosts Iseman and Gbajabiamila, FOX Sports’ Alex Curry will serve as sideline reporter, rounding out the talent commentators.
ANW: Ninja Vs. Ninja is executive-produced by A. Smith & Co. Productions’ founders Arthur Smith and Kent Weed (Hell’s Kitchen, The Dunk King, Spartan: Ultimate Team Challenge), along with Brian Richardson as executive producer.
