ABC partners with 'Amazing Race' duo for fantasy competition series

Bertram van Munster and Elise Doganieri

Well, here is a reality series concept I haven’t heard of before. ABC has ordered up competition reality series, The Quest, which will be set in a fictional place called “Everrealm”. The Quest will pit 12 contestants against one another in a live-action role-playing competition that is described by ABC as taking place in “a land of magic and malevolence, where mythical creatures lurk in the woods, agents of darkness stir in the shadows and mystical beings infiltrate the keep."

The Quest lives up to its name, hailing from the minds of reality television royalty. The Amazing Race co-creators are on board as executive producers. Joining the pair in executive producing the show will be Mark Ordesky and Jane Fleming (Court Five) and Rob Eric and Michael Williams (Green Harbor Productions).

A live-casting event will take place in Arizona at the end of May to seek out contestants. Read the casting call below:

Do you believe there is a hero inside of you just ready to come out? Have you ever thought you were meant to live in another world where fantasy and adventure go hand in hand? Have you ever desired to become a legend? Do you feel more at home losing yourself in the movies you watch or the games you play than in the real world that surrounds you?

From the Emmy award winning creators of THE AMAZING RACE comes an epic and ground-breaking new competition show for a major network, the likes of which has never been seen on television! We are searching nationwide for adventure seeking, fantasy enthusiasts of all kinds who are ready to go on the epic journey of a lifetime!

The series has yet to receive a premiere date. Does The Quest sound like a reality television show that you would like to watch?

I'd absolutely watch this. I would also love to be on this show (I applied). I wish there were more details about the structure of the show.
