Tony Robbins gets NBC series

NBC announced Tuesday that it has ordered a new show starring life strategist and author Tony Robbins.

The series will feature Robbins guiding participants through complex challenges and personal obstacles, while changing their lives and redesigning their futures, said Paul Telegdy, executive vice president of alternative programming for NBC and Universal Media Studios.

In these tough times, this new series will offer complete life transformations to people who deserve a brand new start, and there's no one better suited to assist people in making positive change happen than Tony Robbins, Telegdy said in a statement.

The series is being produced by Reveille, the company behind NBC hit and transformational reality series, The Biggest Loser.

The opportunity to work with Tony Robbins is a once-in-a-lifetime dream both personally and professionally. Making television shows that will change people's lives for the better is the hallmark of Reveille and now is the time for Tony to help people on a mass broadcast scale, added Howard T. Owens, managing director at Reveille. Tony is a larger-than-life personality, who will deeply touch audiences in his first network television series.
