CBS has ordered a new series, BUDDY GAMES, inspired by Josh Duhamel’s “real-life annual tradition with his lifelong friends.”

According to the network, “For the past 20 years, one weekend a summer, Duhamel reunites with his childhood friends to compete in a variety of competition-style games. BUDDY GAMES, based on Duhamel’s own experience, will bring together best friends from different backgrounds and offer them the same opportunity to live together, compete in wild challenges and prove their bonds run deep.” Duhamel wil also host the series.

“Being able to bring BUDDY GAMES to CBS is truly a dream come true for me,” said Duhamel in a statement. “This is something my buddies and I have wanted to share with the world for a long time as we knew there was a relatability to it with other people doing similar things to strengthen their friendships. For me, getting to executive produce and host BUDDY GAMES while observing these groups of friends let loose and become part of this big family has been an honor and will be a lot of fun for viewers to watch.”

In the series, “BUDDY GAMES unites six teams of four deep-rooted friends, who met at various stages of their lives, at a stunning lakeside location for a nostalgic adult summer camp adventure. “Ride or dies” get the chance to play “buddy games” where they will relive their glory days and compete in an assortment of absurd physical and mental challenges in the outdoors while bunking together in the same lake house. Friendships will be rekindled, and rivalries reignited when these friends are challenged to prove which bonds are strong enough to withstand the competition. The last buddy team standing will be crowned champion and take home a cash prize plus the coveted Buddy Games trophy, and of course bragging rights.”
