Global’s reality roster continues to grow as the network adds new series Beyond the Edge to its recently announced midseason lineup. Premiering Wednesday, March 16 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Global, and available to stream live and on demand with STACKTV, the Global TV App and Global TV.com, the new reality adventure series is hosted by sports announcer Mauro Ranallo and features nine celebrities braving the dangerous jungles of Panama to raise money for their chosen charities. The celebrities will 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.
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.
David Garfinkle, Jay Renfroe, Jay Bienstock and Greg Goldman serve as executive producers on Beyond the Edge for Buster Productions in association with Renegade, an eOne company. The series is distributed internationally by ViacomCBS Global Distribution Group.
