Bullseye – FOX TV
BullseyeBullseye is an exhilarating one-hour unscripted challenge series on Fox, hosted by Kellan Lutz. The show challenges four men and four women to test their bodies and brains in three ultimate challenges that ask nothing more than for them to hit the bullseye – literally.  Bullseye’s fierce “weekend warriors” participate in three levels of extraordinary challenges, all of which involve using their bodies like human darts to hit targets – on land, sea and air. The competitors’ ability to defy gravity and the laws of physics, while maintaining their focus, could mean the difference between going home empty-handed …or up to $50,000 richer.
American GritAMERICAN GRIT is a new 10-episode competition series on Fox starring WWE Superstar John Cena. Sixteen of the country’s toughest men and women are split into four teams as they work together to face a variety of military-grade and survival-themed challenges. Cena and an elite group of mentors from the nation’s most exclusive military units push these civilians beyond their limits.  AMERICAN GRIT embodies the military ethos “no man left behind,” because only the first team to complete the challenges together is safe from elimination. Each episode will culminate in “The Circus,” a punishing, endurance-based obstacle course designed to break the weakest competitors. With up to a million dollars of prize money at stake, this is the ultimate test of strength, grit, the human spirit and most importantly, teamwork.
