Los Angeles, CA ‐ 4 APRIL 2012 ‐ NBC, Dick Wolf, and Mark Burnett are headed in to battle with “Stars Earn Stripes”, a new one‐hour non‐scripted series for the network. The project features nine teams, each comprised of one celebrity and one real‐life hero from the top tiers of special operation forces. The teams will face off in grueling competitions as they fight to the finish in the name of their selected charity in a celebration of our Armed Services and national/local Law Enforcement.
The teams will compete in feats of strength, mental acuity, and combat technique that demand highly specialized skills and peak performance from mind and body. The challenges will be reminiscent of real‐life combat scenarios and will include reconnaissance, search and destroy, threat evaluation and elimination, and other sophisticated enactments.
Each week the celebrities will be trained by their highly skilled teammate to prepare for their missions. Missions will include live fire and use various types of weaponry, from assault rifles to rocket launchers. “From a producing standpoint, only the combination of Mark Burnett, Dick Wolf and NBC has the access, good will and experience to draw the best of the best from the military and intelligence communities,” says an executive a t NBC Universal.
Celebrities will be earning the opportunity to raise money for veterans’ and law enforcement charities, including but not limited to Wounded Warriors and the Disabled Police and Sheriffs’ Foundation.
