Trailer: Netflix's 'Ultimate Beastmaster' Is Not About Catching Monsters

Here's a first for Netflix's industrious original content department: an American Ninja Warrior–esque competition show called Ultimate Beastmaster. Its title comes from its central set piece, a brutal obstacle course called THE BEAST. Entertainment Weekly writes, "We’re told their course represents the largest consecutive set ever built for an unscripted TV series anywhere in the world—600 feet long, 80 feet wide and nearly 80 feet tall."

The first trailer for the Sylvester Stallone–executive produced project dropped today, and...yeah, we'll be devouring all 10 episodes when they drop on Feb. 24. Watch the Ultimate Beastmaster trailer up top.

What's unique about Ultimate Beastmaster is that it was filmed in six countries—the U.S., Mexico, Brazil, Japan, South Korea, Germany—and will feature nation-specific episodes leading up to the finale, where nine international finalists will compete. Each applicable Netflix territory will get its own hosts (America's got Terry Crews and Charissa Thompson) and a native language audio track.
