Matt Damon and Ben Affleck are teaming up with Adaptive Studios, Pilgrim Media Group and go90.com to create “THE RUNNER”, a new reality based competition video series with over a million dollars up for grabs.
In the series, one individual, “The Runner”, located somewhere in the U.S. must make it to an undisclosed city, unnoticed over 30 days while following clues about his or her itinerary, including mandated checkpoints. All the while teams designated as “chasers” will use “all available technology” to locate this person before the set time runs out. To help aid the “Chasers” people at home will also be able to play along on go90 in real time and provide tips and information that can help capture “The Runner” for rewards. Real-time video updates are going to be provided on go90 throughout the game, with multiple updates released each day.
The show will be filmed from June 27 to July 31.
Here are the needed attributes listed on the casting website:
TO BE THE RUNNER: “You must be shrewd, tough, physically fit and independent! You have no one to rely on but yourself. The ideal RUNNER is adaptive, resilient, street smart and great with strategy.”
TO BE A CHASER: “You must apply as a two-person team. You and your partner must be outgoing, clever and, yes, in good shape! It doesn’t matter if you are friends, relatives or co-workers, as long as you can work together, strategize and win!”
