"Stars Earn Stripes" on NBC is a fierce and emotionally charged reality competition series honoring America's armed forces.

The cast includes four-time undefeated world boxing champion Laila Ali, actor Dean Cain ("Out of Time," Five Days of War"), actor and former National Football League player Terry Crews ("The Expendables 2," "The Newsroom"), multi-platinum recording artist, actor, producer and television personality Nick Lachey (NBC's "The Sing-Off"), Alaska businessman Todd Palin, Olympic gold medalist Picabo Street, "The Biggest Loser" trainer Dolvett Quince and WWE Diva, Eve Torres.

The special operatives teamed with the celebrities include Dale Comstock, a former U.S. Army Master Sergeant Delta Force and Green Beret; J.W. Cortes, a former U.S. Marine Corps Gunnery; Brent Gleeson, a former U.S. Navy SEAL; Chris Kyle, a former U.S. Navy SEAL sniper and best-selling author of "American Sniper"; Andrew McLaren, a former U.S. Marine Corps Sergeant; Grady Powell, a former U.S. Army Green Beret; Tom Stroup, a SWAT Commander; and Talon Smith, a U.S. Navy Specialist.

The series will be hosted by General Wesley Clark (retired) — the former Supreme Allied Commander Europe for NATO and former presidential candidate — and television personality Samantha Harris ("Entertainment Tonight," "Dancing with the Stars").

The eight competitors will gather at a remote training facility where they will tackle complicated and difficult missions that are inspired by real military exercises. Each will be paired with an "operative" who is a member or a former member of our armed forces or law enforcement agencies. The operative will coach and guide their celebrity teammate on their training and each of their missions and will compete along-side them. From helicopter drops into treacherous locations to long range weapons fire — the competitors will be tested physically and emotionally as they play to win and to earn a cash prize for military, veterans and first-responder based charities. Each week one of the teams will be eliminated.

The charitable organizations that the contestants are playing for include the following: Laila Ali — Military Child Education Coalition, Dean Cain — Wounded Warrior Project, Terry Crews — The Pat Tillman Foundation, Nick Lachey — The Badge of Honor Memorial Foundation, Todd Palin — Armed Services YMCA Alaska, Dolvett Quince — Got your 6, Picabo Street — Hiring Our Heroes, and Eve Torres — USO.

From executive producers Dick Wolf ("Law & Order," "Law & Order: SVU"), Mark Burnett ("The Voice," "Survivor") and David A. Hurwitz ("Fear Factor"), this extraordinary show will donate money raised through the competition to veterans' charities. Committed to hiring recent vets onto the crew, the series hopes to inspire other employers throughout the country to make similar commitments to our returning heroes, not to mention proving how impossible their service missions really are.
