‘AMERICAN NINJA WARRIOR’ CONTINUES THE LAS VEGAS FINALS WHERE THE TOP FINALISTS TAKE ON THE ULTIMATE CHALLENGE – A FOUR STAGE COURSE MODELED AFTER THE EPIC JAPANESE ‘MOUNT MIDORIYAMA’– MATT ISEMAN AND AKBAR GBAJA BIAMILA HOST AND JENN BROWN CO-HOSTS.
“American Ninja Warrior” continues the competition from Las Vegas, Nevada where the top finishers from the regional finals tackle the ultimate challenge - a four stage course modeled after ‘Mount Midoriyama’ in Japan. Competitors will attempt Stage 1 which includes three brand new obstacles: the Giant Cycle, Rope Glider, and the Timbers. The finalists will vie to win a cash prize of $500,000 and the title of “American Ninja Warrior.”
This year, the competition features a newly revised format for each city’s qualifying and finals courses. In order to guarantee a spot in the national finals, competitors must successfully complete the finals course in their respective city. From there, competitors will travel to Las Vegas and earn the chance to win the title of “American Ninja Warrior,” along with the $500,000 grand prize.
The series will premiere this summer and air weekly on G4 and then NBC on consecutive days — with original episodes on each network. Based on the global hit “Sasuke,” from the Tokyo Broadcast System, the original series is in production for its 28th season and only three contestants have completed the course.
“American Ninja Warrior” is executive-produced by A. Smith & Co. Productions’ founders Arthur Smith and Kent Weed (“Hell’s Kitchen,” “I Survived a Japanese Game Show,” “Pros vs. Joes”) along with Lake Paradise Entertainment’s Holly Wofford and Viki Cacciatore.
