Epic competition series Team Ninja Warrior is bringing more heat to USA Network’s Tuesday night line-up. Hosted by comedian Matt Iseman and former NFL player Akbar Gbajabiamila, the upcoming 11-part season of Team Ninja Warrior will once again feature some of the biggest names from the American Ninja Warrior franchise. The dual-running course, which will be highlighted by even more challenging obstacles this season, incorporates speed, human agility, skill, and a whole new strategy of racing.
For season two, fan-favorite competitors from American Ninja Warrior will form 28 teams, each with two men and one woman, and settle their rivalries on the warped wall -- for ultimate ninja bragging rights. In addition to hosts Iseman and Gbajabiamila, FOX Sports’ Alex Curry will serve as sideline reporter, rounding out the talent commentators.
Team Ninja Warrior 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. The series is a spin-off of American Ninja Warrior, which is based on the Sasuke/Ninja Warrior format from Tokyo Broadcasting System Television, Inc., and airs on NBC.
