Corus Entertainment has greenlit a second season of the reality series The Adrenaline Project for YTV, with Survivor’s challenge producer, Alan Bishop, joining the teen show.
Created by marblemedia partners Matt Hornburg and Mark Bishop, the second season of the series will see a new tournament-style format in which contestants compete throughout all 26 episodes to win the championship title.
Alan Bishop’s role on The Adrenaline Project will be to develop new mental and physical challenges to maximize the “adrenaline rush.” He has served as challenge producer on both Survivor and The Amazing Race.
Slated for launch immediately prior to the season-two premiere this fall, the show’s website is also receiving an overhaul that includes new games emulating the redesigned tournament-style of the show and web-exclusive video content. The site recently received financial support from the Bell Broadcast and New Media Fund.
“We’ve received thousands of emails from tweens and teens who love the show or want to be part of it,” said Hornburg, who executive produces the show. “With Alan on board we’re going to give them an even more action-packed season to watch and to play, chock-full of great play and increased drama.
“We’re delighted to be working with the team at marblemedia on this second season of The Adrenaline Project,” said Jocelyn Hamilton, the VP of content for Corus Kids Television. “With the addition of Alan Bishop to this second season, YTV is looking forward to bringing its viewers even more fresh and adrenaline-seeking content to its Get Real block of programming.”
