Ice Road Truckers creators Thom Beers, Gail Berman, and Lloyd Braun have signed an exclusive deal with NBC to produce three television series. According to The Hollywood Reporter they will be three hour-long action-adventure reality programs.
This trio of shows will run in one block. Each series has a ten-episode order, which adds up to thirty hours of broadcast fare. As part of the deal, BermanBraun and Beers' Original Productions have three pilot commitments for future unscripted projects.
NBC reality chief Craig Plestis stated, "We've seen with two-hour Deal or No Deal or The Biggest Loser that airing things similar in theme back-to-back helps carry over the audience."
This three-hour block of programming does not have a set airdate at this time.
