From a media release:
Season 2 of reality series The Adrenaline Project has been green lit by Corus Entertainment for YTV. Joining the talented team this season is veteran Challenge Producer Alan Bishop, whose impressive credits include Survivor and The Amazing Race. Alan’s role on the teen series as Challenge Producer will be to help develop heart-pumping mental and physical challenges to maximize the adrenaline rush.
“Having had the chance to work with the best Challenge Designers in the industry has given me incredible experience and ammunition to push this seasons contestants to new levels and increase the excitement. We want to blow the viewers away this season, â€ said Bishop.
Created by marblemedia partners Matt Hornburg and Mark Bishop, Season 2 will step-up the excitement with a new tournament-style format that sees contestants competing over the whole season of 26 episodes to win the championship title of â€œThe Ultimate Adrenalite.â€
â€œWe’ve received thousands of emails from tweens and teens who love the show or want to be part of it. With Alan on board we’re going to give them an even more action-packed season to watch and to play, chock-full of great play and increased drama,â€ said Executive Producer Matt Hornburg.
â€œWe’re delighted to be working with the team at marblemedia on this second season of The Adrenaline Project,â€ said Jocelyn Hamilton, Vice President, Content, Corus Kids Television. â€œWith the addition of Alan Bishop to this second season, YTV is looking forward to bringing its viewers even more fresh and adrenaline-seeking content to its Get Real block of programming.â€
The dynamic website www.theadrenalineproject.com, which recently received financial support from the Bell Broadcast and New Media Fund, will receive a dramatic makeover with new elements for Season 2 including engaging new games designed in the same tournament style as the show, allowing users to create their own tournaments and challenge friends. Also featured will be web exclusive video content, such as video blogs that allow the audience to see the innermost thoughts of the challengers as they compete to win. The transformed website launches just before Season 2’s television premiere in Fall 2008.
