TBS has picked up a full season of an hour-long talent competition series titled “Go-Big Show.”
The news was announced on Wednesday simultaneously on TBS, TNT and truTV, making it the three networks’ first roadblock announcement. “Go-Big Show” celebrates the most extreme of talents, including monster truck races, alligator training and stunt archery as contestants compete against each other for a grand prize of $100,000.
“We are going bigger and bolder with our unscripted line-up at TBS to provide more of the content that viewers love from our platform,” said Brett Weitz, general manager of TNT, TBS and truTV. “’Go-Big Show’ not only delivers on this promise with a thrilling new take on talent competition, but it’s also another example of our innovative spirit as we continue to create brand-defining, must-watch television.”
The show has started production at Macon Coliseum in Georgia, where talent and crew members are following COVID-19 safety protocols and isolating together through the filming of all 10 episodes. In addition, the location will allow for the first-ever television drive-in audience, during which attendees can watch the show at a socially-distanced tailgate outside the venue.
“Go-Big Show” is set to debut in 2021. The show is produced by Propagate and Matador Content, a Boatrocker Company, and executive produced by Todd Lubin and Jay Peterson of Matador Content; Howard T. Owens, Ben Silverman, and Greg Lipstone of Propagate Content; showrunner Conrad Green; Bert Kreischer, Snoop Dogg and Ted Chung for Snoopadelic Films.
