John Cena’s Fox Competition Series ‘American Grit’ Sets Premiere Date (Video)

Series follows teams of four as they compete in military-style challenges

John Cena‘s new competition series on Fox, “American Grit,” has gotten an official premiere date and first trailer, the network announced Wednesday.

The new military-inspired competition series will debut April 14 at 9 p.m/8c following the spring return of “Bones” on Fox.

Starring WWE Superstar Cena, the show follows 16 of the country’s toughest men and women as they are split into four teams and face a variety of military-grade and survival-themed challenges.

Cena leads an elite group of mentors from the nation’s most exclusive military units, including Navy SEAL Commander Rorke Denver, Army Sergeant Noah Galloway, Marine Gunnery Sergeant Tawanda “Tee” Hanible and Army Ranger Nick “The Reaper” Irving. With up to a million dollars of prize money at stake, this is the ultimate test of strength, grit, the human spirit and, most importantly, teamwork.

“American Grit” is produced by Leftfield Pictures and executive-produced by Brent Montgomery, David George, Adam Sher, Will Nothacker and Jon Kroll. Cena also serves as executive producer.
