A new TV competition series that tests celebrities against the demands of military exercises will be produced for NBC.
"Stars Earn Stripes" is the working title of the show from veteran producers Dick Wolf ("Law & Order") and Mark Burnett ("Survivor," "The Voice"). Nine celebrities from music, sports and Hollywood will be paired with trainers at a "top-notch, secret training facility," the producers said in a statement Thursday.
The contestants will face weekly challenges such as hostage-rescue exercises or placing a laser target atop a mountain.
Burnett, who joined the British military at age 17 and served as a paratrooper, said celebrities and the audience will realize how "hard and scary" such tasks are.
An air date for "Stars Earn Stripes" wasn't announced.
