JOIN US IN WATCHING STARS EARN STRIPES THIS FALL ON NBC!
The “Stars Earn Stripes” cast gather at a remote training facility where they are introduced to their partner, a current or former member of a military branch or one of our first-responder forces. The teams are challenged to execute a complicated “mission” inspired by actual military exercises. The two teams with the slowest times will compete against one another in a shoot-out and the winning team will move onto the next round of the competition.
SERIES PREMIERE: Monday, August 13 @ 8/7c Mondays on NBC
Hosted by General Wesley Clark (retired) and Samantha Harris, "Stars Earn Stripes" is an action-packed competition show that pays homage to the men and women who serve in the U.S. Armed Forces and our first-responder services. The star-studded cast includes four-time undefeated world boxing champion Laila Ali, actor Dean Cain ("Out of Time," Five Days of War"), actor and former National Football League player Terry Crews ("The Expendables 2," "The Newsroom"), multi-platinum recording artist, actor, producer and television personality Nick Lachey (NBC's "The Sing-Off"), Alaska businessman and four-time Iron Dog snowmobile race champion Todd Palin, "The Biggest Loser" trainer Dolvett Quince, Olympic gold medalist Picabo Street, and WWE Diva, Eve Torres.
The eight celebrities will gather at a remote training facility, where they will be challenged to execute complicated missions inspired by real military exercises. From helicopter drops into water to long-range weapons fire, the contestants will be tested physically, mentally and emotionally. Each will be paired with a special operative from a military branch or one of our first-responder forces, including former U.S. Army Delta Force and Green Berets, U.S. Navy SEALS, U.S. Marines and police officers, who train alongside their partners and compete in the missions with them.
Each of the teams is competing for a cash prize on behalf of a military, veterans or first-responder charity. And the Armed Services YMCA of Alaska was chosen by Todd Palin. So join us in rooting for Todd each week…we hope he makes it to the finale!
Committed to hiring recent vets on to the crew, "Stars Earn Stripes" hopes to inspire other employers throughout the country to make similar commitments to our returning heroes and show audiences just how impossible their service missions really are. Dick Wolf ("Law & Order," "Law & Order: SVU"), Mark Burnett ("The Voice," "Survivor") and David A. Hurwitz ("Fear Factor") serve as executive producers. The series is a production of Universal Television, One Three Media, Wolf Reality, LLC and Bill's Market & Television Productions.
