It’s ‘Indiana Jones’ meets ‘The Amazing Race’!

ABC is teaming up with reality show guru Mark Burnett (‘Survivor,’ ‘The Apprentice‘) for a new adventure reality series, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The network has ordered episodes of ‘Expedition Impossible,’ which is expected to air next summer.

The concept–three-man teams face challenges as they race around the world–is similar to CBS’ outstanding ‘Amazing Race’ meshed with Burnett’s ‘Eco Challenge’ series, which aired on the Discovery Channel several years ago.

“I love high adventure television, and I am so excited to be working with ABC in bringing an epic ‘Indiana Jones’-style experience to the viewers,” Burnett said to THR.
