By Christopher Rocchio, 11/24/2008
Tony Robbins will reportedly help empower people via a new reality series.
NBC has ordered a pilot presentation for a new The Biggest Loser-like reality series starring the self-help writer and speaker, TV Weekreported Sunday.
While NBC has remained mum on the project's details, TV Week reported the network has already begun casting for people who've had their lives "knocked off course by a tragedy from which they can't seem to recover" or who are "paralyzed by fears or anger."
"The world's leading life coach, Tony Robbins, is teaming with NBC to offer a once-in-a-lifetime chance to get you, or someone you love, the help they need," reads the project's casting notice, according to TV Week. "If your case is right, you could meet Tony one-on-one and experience an incredible transformation."
In addition, the show also offers potential participants "the chance to turn their life around."
NBC declined to reveal the production company behind the project, according to TV Week, which added NBC reality executive Craig Plestis will oversee it.
