The upcoming Spartan TV show, inspired by the global fitness phenomenon Spartan Race and based on the US TV show Spartan: Ultimate Team Challenge, will see contestants join forces to race across a specially-designed course engineered to challenge their determination, endurance and will.

Spartan is being produced by Matchbox Pictures and Eureka Productions for Channel 7 and TVNZ.

The show is currently casting  in New Zealand, with applications closing on 18th October. A New Zealand casting tour will take place in November, with filming to be completed in Australia. See more information on casting here.

The format rights for Spartan: Ultimate Team Challenge are held by NBCUniversal International.

TVNZ’s Director of Content, Cate Slater says: “We’re proud to partner with Channel 7 on this new blockbuster series. Spartan is set to be the toughest and biggest obstacle course ever seen on Australian or New Zealand television. Allowing Kiwi contestants a chance to take on the Aussies should have viewers in both countries glued to their screens and cheering on their favourites.”

Spartan will air on TVNZ 2 and OnDemand in 2018.
