Each one-hour episode of Wipeout will follow 24 contestants as they attempt to make their way through an obstacle course "designed to provide the most crashes, face plants, impacts and wipe outs ever seen on television," according to ABC.

The contestant who's able to overcome the most obstacles without biting the dust will win the $50,000 grand prize.

ESPN SportsCenter anchor John Anderson will serve as Wipeout's host, with actress Jill Wagner serving as co-host.

ABC began developing Wipeout earlier this year and it's produced by Endemol USA, which was responsible for NBC's Fear Factor reality series. The series is executive-produced by Matt Kunitz.
