The Biggest Loser Reboot in the Works at USA Network

USA Network is set to reboot The Biggest Loser for a ten-episode season that is expected to bow in 2020.

From Endemol Shine North America, in association with Universal Television Alternative Studio, The Biggest Loser reboot will feature men and women competing to get to a healthier weight while also improving their overall wellbeing. A team of experts including a trainer, chef and life coach—who’ve yet to be announced—will help the contestants during their transformation.

Mark Miller, executive VP of ad sales at NBCUniversal, said: “At NBCUniversal, we know the power of impactful content that connects with audiences on an emotional level, and USA is the perfect home for an iconic franchise like The Biggest Loser which does just that. We are confident that these incredible stories of transformation will resonate with viewers and advertisers alike.”

Chris McCumber, president of entertainment networks for USA Network and SYFY, added: “We’re re-imagining The Biggest Loser for today’s audiences, providing a new holistic, 360-degree look at wellness, while retaining the franchise’s competition format and legendary jaw-dropping moments. USA’s recent reboot of Temptation Island brought both new and younger viewers to the network, and we’re excited to add another big, buzzy show to our growing unscripted lineup.”
