Tough As Nails is about hardworking people who consider the calluses on their hands a badge of honor. They will be tested for their strength, endurance, agility, and mental toughness in challenges that take place in the real world. One by one, they will be eliminated until the Tough As Nails winner is named.

The series will redefine what it means to be tough—proving toughness comes in all shapes and sizes. It will celebrate Americans who roll up their sleeves 24/7 and don’t think twice about working long hard hours and getting their hands dirty.

Phil Keoghan is also the host and an executive producer of the multiple Emmy Award-winning reality competition series The Amazing Race on CBS, the host of National Geographic Explorer, and the host of his podcast, BUCKiT with Phil Keoghan.

Phil Keoghan, Louise Keoghan, and Anthony Carbone are executive producers for the series, which is produced by Raquel Productions Inc. in association with Tough House Productions Inc.

A premiere date for Tough As Nails will be announced at a later time.
