We built the biggest outdoor arena ever for an athletic competition series on TV – THE TITAN ARENA. Our next step: Conduct the first ever TITAN COMBINE to FIND OUR TITANS. Tens of thousands of hardworking, athletic people from all walks of life applied – LESS THAN 100 made it. This series is my DNA and we tested and pushed these athletes like never before. They sweat, they agonized in pain and they bled. I was very proud 😈 Get ready to see who's hungriest in the land for that coveted title of TITAN CHAMPION with our two-hour premiere event on WEDNESDAY JAN 2 at 8pm on @NBC. Mark your calendar 📆 as we kick off the new year with a very DISRUPTIVE BANG💥 @ASmithCoProd @SevenBucksProd #UniversalTelevisionAlternative #TITANGAMES #NBC
