Dick Wolf and Mark Burnett team up for new NBC reality series
Two of TV's elite producers — Dick Wolf and Mark Burnett — are joining forces for a new NBC reality show revolving around military veterans and active-duty servicemen and servicewomen training celebrities.
Wolf ("Law & Order," "Law & Order: SVU") and Burnett ("Survivor," "The Voice"), will be executive producers of the show, which has the working title "Stars Earn Stripes."
In the series, nine celebrities will gather at a top-notch, secret training facility. Each will be paired with a trainer assigned to prepare his or her celebrity for the weekly challenge. Those challenges will be adapted from real exercises drawn from all five branches of the armed services, as well as joint ops and Special Forces.
