MUMBAI: Buena Vista International Television – Asia Pacific (BVITV-AP) has licensed the two-time Emmy Award winning reality-competition series The Amazing Race to five broadcasters across Asia Pacific.

Eleven teams of two people, each with a pre-existing relationship, set out on The Amazing Race around the world to compete for one million dollars. The series tracks the teams’ progress across the globe, chronicling dramatic conflicts and deepening friendships that develop between and within the teams throughout the gruelling competition. The first team to reach the final destination after a race around the world wins the million dollar prize.“The Amazing Race is an incredible challenge,” commented Macallister. “Teams must overcome obstacles that all travelers face including foreign languages, unfamiliar customs, unusual cuisine and increasing fatigue with the added pressure of competing for a million dollars. The latest installment of this exhilarating reality-competition continues to generate significant interest from broadcasters across the Asia Pacific region.”

The Amazing Race won the 2003 and 2004 Emmy Award for Best Reality Series. Jerry Bruckheimer, Bertram van Munster (who co-created the series along with Elise Doganieri) and Jonathan Littman are the executive producers for Bruckheimer Films and Earthview Inc. in association with Touchstone Television and Amazing Race Productions.
