CBS Orders 8th and 9th Installments of the Emmy Award-Winning Reality Series 'The Amazing Race'

[via press release from CBS]

CBS ORDERS 8TH AND 9TH INSTALLMENTS OF THE EMMY AWARD-WINNING REALITY SERIES �THE AMAZING RACE�

Teams Participating In �The Amazing Race 8� Will Be Part Of the Series� First Ever �Family Edition�

A Nationwide Casting Search For Families to Compete in �The Amazing Race 8� Begins This week

CBS has ordered the eighth and ninth installments of THE AMAZING RACE to be broadcast during the 2005/2006 television season. The Emmy Award-wining adventure reality series pits teams against one another in a race around the world for a $1 million prize.

In a format twist, THE AMAZING RACE 8 will be an all-family edition. Teams will be expanded to four members from two, and all teams will be comprised exclusively of family members. Examples of �family edition� teams could be traditional families (mom, dad and two kids), blended families (newly married with step siblings), four sisters, four brothers, multi-generational (grandparents and grandchildren) or engaged couples with in-laws-to-be, etc.

Families who think they have the stamina, wits and teamwork skills to compete in this heart-pounding adventure can find applications exclusively on CBS.com. All children participating must be 12 years of age or older. No prior travel experience is necessary.

�Everyone can relate to family travel�the camaraderie, the emotion and even the conflict,� said executive producer Bertram van Munster. �We�re looking for families who want to turn this familiar concept into an adventure that will take them to some amazing places while discovering a lot about their family dynamic and human spirit.�

THE AMAZING RACE 9 will return to the series� regular format in which teams must have a unique and a prior relationship with their teammate, but need not be related.

The newest edition of the hit reality series, THE AMAZING RACE 7, will premiere on Tuesday, March 1 (9:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

Jerry Bruckheimer, Bertram van Munster, Jonathan Littman and Hayma Screech Washington are the executive producers for Bruckheimer Television and Earthview Inc. in association with Touchstone Television and Amazing Race Productions. Amy Chacon and Evan Weinstein are co-executive producers. THE AMAZING RACE was created by Bertram van Munster and Elise Doganieri.
