History Takes Aim At First Reality Competition Series


History is taking its first shot at reality competition.
The network will match 16 modern-day marksmen against one another in a series of challenges to see who is the best shot with a gun or arrow, or stone.

From Pilgrim Films & Television, the 10-episode series is sheduled to premiere on the network in 2010.

Each challenge will feature a weapon from a different era be it ancient Rome, the wild west or present day, with the contestants trying to master the tactics and technology they are given. Slow-motion cameras are set to track every move and technique.

"Not only will contestants have a chance to experience history in the making, but they might make history themselves by breaking a world record," said History president and general manager Nancy Dubuc.
