About the Show

The unscripted series follows 30 men and women as they are pushed to the edge and beyond by a team of instructors trained by Navy SEALs, Green Berets, and Army Rangers. The elite team of instructors breaks the participants down both mentally and physically through tear gas, psychological warfare, interrogation tactics, and much more.

The cool thing about this show is that there is no reward. You can’t be “being voted off the island”. And there’s definitely no “ring ceremony”. No. This show is about pride. It’s about standing up to the toughest training in the world and coming out a tested warrior. At any time, any one of the participants can ring the bell and walk away.

“Throughout the history of our nation, Special Operations training tactics has played an integral part in our military endeavors and this series gives viewers a rare glimpse into what it takes to be selected among the elite,” said Paul Cabana, Executive Vice President and Head of Programming, HISTORY. “‘The Selection’ will offer civilians the unique opportunity to take part in an immersive, authentic course instructed by different branches leading together, while giving viewers insight into the origins of these challenges.”
