The Quest debuted on ABC tonight, a new breed of reality show that’s part reality, part competition, and part live action role-playing.
The show is described as being a fully immersive experience for the participants. 12 unsuspecting contestants to an imaginative realm, where ogres run free in the forest, dragons stir, agents of a dark lord infiltrate the keep, and the only thing standing between peace and chaos are one dozen very unlikely heroes. In and around this castle, the fantasy realm will come to life with state-of-the art projections, animatronics, prosthetics and art direction.
The narrative and mythology of The Quest is deep and fully imagined, and it has been designed to incorporate seamlessly with the unexpected actions and decisions of the contestants – fantasy comes alive as it never has before in this genre-bending series from the Executive Producer of “The Lord of the Rings” trilogy and the Executive Producers of “The Amazing Race.”
