    Expedition Impossible

    Watch Full Episodes for Free Online - Expedition Impossible - ABC.com

    Expedition Impossible, the next evolution of high adventure and human drama, is a new global competition series from Executive Producer Mark Burnett. The series will feature teams of ordinary people doing the extraordinary, as they compete in the biggest adventure of their lives.

    In Expedition Impossible, teams of three will solve problems while racing across deserts, over mountains and through rivers. Each week a new stage of the expedition will be revealed. Will teams crumble under the pressure of having to think clearly in the wilds of the great outdoors, or will they work together to get through and complete their adventures? After ten stunning legs of competition, one team will cross the finish line first to claim victory.

    "We think the ABC audience will respond to this incredibly fun show, which is equal parts high extreme competition, teamwork and strategy featuring unique landscapes and different cultures," said John Saade and Vicki Dummer, Senior Vice Presidents, Alternative Series, Specials and Late Night, ABC Entertainment Group. "We look forward to collaborating again with Mark Burnett and his team to create an epic series."

    "I love high adventure television and I am so excited to be working with ABC in bringing an epic Indiana Jones style experience to the viewers," said executive producer Mark Burnett.

    Mark Burnett and Lisa Hennessy serve as executive producers. Both the television show and format will be distributed internationally by Mark Burnett International.

    EXPEDITION-IMPOSSIBLE

    Now that Mark Burnett is stealing some thunder away from American Idol with The Voice, is he now hoping to suck a little steam out of The Amazing Race?

    You be the judge: Burnett is the man behind a new summer reality show for ABC dubbed Expedition Impossible, which features 13 teams of three players who will travel across deserts, mountains and rivers in the “exotic, fabled Kingdom of Morocco.” Fun? Each week a new stage of the expedition will be revealed to the competitors, who must find a way to work together to complete the trip. After 10 legs of competition, one team will cross the finish line. Winners each receive $50,000, a Ford Explorer (nice product placement) and the privilege of never having to be called members of the Fab 3, Mom’s Army, or Grandpa’s Warriors ever again.

    Expedition Impossible

    Anybody else interested in this new show? Just heard about it for the first time today and watched the 15 minute preview on the website and it looks pretty cool. As an Amazing Race fan and seeing the similarities I'll be sure to check it out.

    Here's the wiki page with the show description and the link to the official website at the bottom: Expedition Impossible (TV series) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Re: Expedition Impossible

    Luv eco races. Luv'd the ones Mark Burnett produced. Wished more were filmed and shown on TV. Can't wait for this to start. Should be a summer gem. Only thing I don't like about this is that the last team in is eliminated. Come on this is a 2,000 mile race. In real eco racing all that matters is who comes in first. Many teams have issues with certain type of activity and terrain you do not need to add the stress of elimination in each leg. That rule totally disappoints.

    Looking forward to it! I already can't stand the guy on the commercial who says "how humiliating it would be to lose to a blind guy". I mean, who says that!

    Personally I find these humane mouse traps rather ineffective. Better to lay down some glue and when you hear the critter scream you take a shovel to his head.

    I had great hope this would be like his old eco challenge series that was on every year on Discovery. The elimination angel does nothing for me. Doesn't add to the thing for me. I want to see the adventure race.
