Runnin’ Wild … From Ted Nugent Competition Series Coming to CMT

A new series, Runnin’ Wild … From Ted Nugent, will debut on CMT in August. Nugent’s 18-year-old son, Rocco, will also star in the show. In each one-hour episode, Nugent instructs three competitors on one of what he calls the “Big Five of Survival,” including the psychology of survival, shelter, water, fire and food, and will design an obstacle centered on that skill. The competitors then try to survive on their own while Nugent and Rocco attempt to hunt them down. In a twist on the competition/elimination format, Nugent will determine the outcome himself at the end of each episode. As a solo musician, Nugent has sold more than 35 million albums which include hits such as “Stranglehold,” “Spirit of the Wild” and “Cat Scratch Fever.” In recent years, Nugent has become widely acknowledged as a hunter and conservationist.
