Last year we heard a lot of buzz about a reality show that was designed to appeal to the geek audience and was on the hunt for those everyday folks who loved genre entertainment to compete in a show something like THE AMAZING RACE. Called THE QUEST, TORn helped announce some walk-up casting calls and, maybe, some TORn staffers were considered for parts on the show. Tonight we received this official word (
a little a lot late) of what to expect when it gets a preview tonight.
Here is the info we received: “Tonight, as part of the 2-hour Once Upon A Time broadcast, ABC will present its first look at an epic reality competition like none other, The Quest. This mid summer series takes 12 everyday people and puts them in an extraordinary fantasy world to compete to save a kingdom. Please keep your eye out for the first look of this exciting new series from a producing team that includes the Executive Producer of the blockbuster The Lord of the Rings trilogy (Mark Ordesky), the executive producer of the Emmy winning The Amazing Race and the executive producing team behind the groundbreaking Queer Eye.”
