Hosted by Hannah Simone ("New Girl"), this competition series teams ten expert survivalists with pampered partners to face the toughest challenges of their lives. The series drops these unlikely duos into a tropical jungle in Fiji, where they must overcome dangerous animals, raging rivers, hunger and extreme weather. While these no-nonsense survivalists are accustomed to fending for themselves, there's one thing for which none of their previous expeditions have prepared them: their nature-phobic partners, who think "glamping" is roughing it. To win the competition, and a cash prize of $500,000, the experts will have to drag their partners, "Kicking & Screaming," to the finish line.
Produced by Pulse Creative's Matt Kunitz ("Wipeout," "Fear Factor"), in association with Lionsgate Television, "Kicking & Screaming" is created by Matt Kunitz, David Shumsky and Mark Harris, and executive-produced by Kunitz and Anthony Dominici. Rebecca Shumsky Quinn developed the project and is a co-executive producer, along with Shumsky and Harris.
