DISNEY XD TO PREMIERE "FORT BOYARD - ULTIMATE CHALLENGE," A REALITY ADVENTURE SERIES ON MONDAY, OCTOBER 17

Geno Segers (Disney XD's "Pair of Kings") and popular British television presenter Laura Hamilton ("Dancing On Ice") host an exciting competition requiring brainpower, courage and teamwork, "Fort Boyard - Ultimate Challenge," a 10-part series premiering MONDAY, OCTOBER 17 (8:30-9:00 p.m., ET/PT), with a thrilling finale MONDAY, NOVEMBER 7 (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET/PT) on Disney XD. Based on the international game show phenomenon "Fort Boyard," the series is set in a 19th century sea fort off the coast of France. It introduces six teams -- 24 teens from the United States and the United Kingdom -- who team up for a tournament where only one team will ultimately get the key to unlock the historic fort's hidden treasures and win the honor of calling themselves "the conquerors of Fort Boyard."

The reality adventure series marks the first kids' version of the popular game show which premiered more than 20 years ago and has since been produced in over 38 countries worldwide.

In the premiere episode, team members from the Red Vipers and Yellow Scorpions compete in the first round of challenges to find out which team has what it takes to move on to become the conquerors of the fort.

"Fort Boyard - Ultimate Challenge" is produced by Zodiak Media Group's production companies The Foundation and Adventure Line Productions, who created the concept for the original "Fort Boyard" and have been producing the series for 22 years.

The executive producers are Nigel Pickard and Ged Allen for The Foundation, Pierre Godde for Adventure Line Productions and Jamila Metran for CiTV. The producer is Steve Pinhay.

The series will be televised on Disney XD cable and satellite channels around the world (excluding France and the Nordics) and CiTV in the UK.
