Netflix, the internet TV network, is bringing together top tier competitors and athletes from around the world to compete in a new action-packed global competition series, featuring and produced by Sylvester Stallone.
“The invitation to partner with Netflix and mega-producer Dave Broome on this revolutionary concept was an opportunity I couldn’t resist. The world will watch in awe as amazing competitors from around the globe overcome gruelling physical challenges – and in the process become champions and heroes. The course is unequalled in its daring creation and I am excited to be a part of it.” – Sylvester Stallone
Ultimate Beastmaster is the first international competition series of its kind with six customised local versions featuring local languages, competitors and hosts from each competing country. Those countries are: the US, Brazil, South Korea, Mexico, Germany and Japan. All ten episodes of the series will be made available at the same time globally on Netflix.
The ten-episode event series will feature 108 competitors, 18 from each country, in total. Each hour-long episode will feature 12 competitors, two from each country, who will take their shot at running one of the most physically-demanding obstacle courses ever devised: “The Beast”. At the end of each episode, a ‘Beastmaster’ will be crowned, and in the final episode of the season, the nine individual winners from each episode will compete against each other for the chance to become the Ultimate Beastmaster in the final, tenth episode of the series.
For each localised version in the US, Brazil, South Korea, Mexico, Germany and Japan, local celebrity hosts and popular athletes will provide commentary throughout the competition.
“As a global internet TV network, Netflix can create a uniquely compelling event that pits great competitors from six countries against one another with commentators that audiences from these countries love, and then unleash all of the episodes, at once, in multiple languages for our members to enjoy no matter where they are. With Sylvestor Stallone and Dave Broome at the helm, it’s going to be outrageously fun.”- Erik Barmack, Vice President, International Originals
