The Titan Games is a sports competition series of 10 episodes, which premiered on NBC on January 3, 2019.[1] Hosted by Dwayne Johnson, the show features people from across the United States competing in endurance-based mental and physical challenges of "epic proportions" to be named Titans; the sixteen Titans will compete to be named Titan Champions, one male and one female.[2] The show is marketed with the tagline "Titans aren't born, They're Made."

Development[edit]

When announced by NBC in February 2018, the press release claimed it would be similar to NBC's 2008 remake of American Gladiators, with contenders trying to replace existing Titans by defeating an existing Titan; newly-victorious Titans would then need to defend their titles in future episodes.[2]

The opening credits to the premiere episode claimed that the events were inspired by Johnson's personal workouts.

Format[edit]

In each episode, four male and four female contestants compete to be named Titans. In each of four preliminary heats, two men or two women compete head-to-head; the two male winners and two female winners then compete on "Mount Olympus," an obstacle course (similar to the Eliminator on American Gladiators).
