ABC to Premiere New Reality Series THE QUEST, 7/31

A genre-bending new reality series unlike anything else on television, "The Quest," combines harrowing and intense competition challenges, narrative storytelling and cutting edge special effects and prosthetics to conjure an immersive fantasy environment. 12 real people, pulled from their everyday lives, are transported to a fantasy world where they are declared Paladins, defenders of a noble cause. The Paladins must compete to save the besieged kingdom of Everealm but only one will prevail and earn the right to be called the One True Hero. "The Quest" premieres THURSDAY, JULY 31 (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET/PT) on the ABC Television Network.

From the executive producers behind such television and motion picture hits as "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy, "The Amazing Race" and "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy," "The Quest" creates a seamless and surprising experience for these fans of fantasy and fairytales, featuring an elaborate and full mythology (developed by Haxan Films), animatronic creatures (created by the award-winning team at Spectral Motion), and real-time 3D projection mapping (developed by NuFormer).

As previously announced, the Paladins who will rely on physical stamina, intelligence and resourcefulness to emerge as the One True Hero are:

Shondo Blades (30, MMA Fighter from Houston, TX)
Lina Carollo (27, School Counselor from Delran, NJ)
Jim Curry (22, Student from Little Rock, AR)
Andrew Frazer (25, Personal Trainer from West Hartford, CT)
Bonnie Gordon (28, Property Manager from Lafayette, LA)
Ashley Guerrero (35, Horse Trainer from Murrieta, CA)

Adria Kyne (41, Marketing Director from Nashua, NH)
Leticia Reyes (36, Executive Assistant from White Plains, NY)
Katherine "Katie" Smaluk (26, Bartender from Chicago, IL)
Christian Sochor (23, Server from New York, NY)

"The Quest" was filmed on location in Austria and is executive produced by Bertram van Munster, Elise Doganieri, Mark Ordesky, Jane Fleming, Rob Eric and Michael Williams.
