HOLLY WOFFORD AND JANE Y. MUN NAMED AS EXECUTIVE PRODUCERS AND SHOWRUNNERS FOR "TKO: TOTAL KNOCK OUT" HOSTED BY KEVIN HART ON CBS

As Previously Announced, the New One-Hour Obstacle Course Competition from Mark Burnett and MGM Television Will Premiere This Summer

Veteran producers Holly Wofford and Jane Y. Mun have been named as executive producers and showrunners for TKO: TOTAL KNOCK OUT, a new one-hour obstacle course competition series from executive producer Mark Burnett (SURVIVOR, "The Voice," "Shark Tank"). The 10-episode series will premiere in summer 2018 on CBS. As previously announced, Kevin Hart will serve as the host and an executive producer.

"Holly and Jane are incredible producers and have separately worked with me for many years," said Burnett. "I am thrilled to put them together to lead our TKO team. They are both top-level network showrunners, and I look forward to working alongside these amazing women again."

Emmy Award-nominated producer Holly Wofford has worked on numerous successful television franchises. She started her career at "America's Most Wanted" and went on to work with Burnett on CBS' SURVIVOR before developing the format for "American Ninja Warrior" and "ANW: USA vs. Japan." In addition, she executive produced and was the showrunner on network series "America Ninja Warrior," "Strong," "The Island" and "Supernanny," among others.

Jane Y. Mun's credits include some of the biggest awards shows, music specials and groundbreaking events on television. For over a decade, she produced both "The People's Choice Awards" and "The MTV Movie Awards," with Burnett, as well as "The 63rd Primetime Emmy Awards." Her additional credits include "Lip Sync Battle Live," "America's Best Dance Crew: All Stars" and "The Sing Off."

TKO: TOTAL KNOCK OUT features people from all walks of life where one player races through daunting obstacles while four other contestants are manning battle stations along the course, firing over-the-top projectiles in an attempt to knock them off and slow them down. It's a physical and funny "us versus them" scenario, with the top two players advancing to the final showdown to face off for a cash prize.

TKO: TOTAL KNOCK OUT will be produced by MGM Television and HartBeat Productions and distributed internationally by MGM. Mark Burnett, Barry Poznick, Kevin Hart, Holly Wofford and Jane Y. Mun are executive producers. In addition to serving as executive producer on TKO: TOTAL KNOCK OUT, Burnett is an executive producer of CBS' hit series SURVIVOR, produced by MGM Television and currently in its 36th season on the Network.
