Hulk Hogan (“Hogan Knows Best”) and Laila Ali (“Dancing with the Stars”) host “American Gladiators,” the iconic competition series, which returns with a fresh modern reinvention for the 21st century. Using splashy twists including special effects, water skills and the latest technology, the classic games will be upgraded with even higher thrills, impact, energy and spectacle.

As in MGM’s traditional “American Gladiators” franchise, everyday amateur athletes compete against the Gladiators in contests of physical strength and endurance. The series includes such classic events as Joust, The Wall, Hang Tough, Powerball, Assault, Pyramid, Gauntlet and the Eliminator along with two brand-new events including Earthquake and Hit & Run.

“American Gladiators” is produced by MGM Television (the original producers of the show) and Reveille (NBC’s “The Office” and “The Biggest Loser,” “Nashville Star,” “Ugly Betty”). Reveille’s Mark Koops, Howard T. Owens and David A. Hurwitz (“Fear Factor”) are the executive producers alongside Flor-Jon, Films Inc.’s Johnny Ferraro, original series creator.
