Game On!, hosted by Emmy and Peabody Award-winning actor, writer and producer Keegan-Michael Key, is a series that celebrates the entertainment of sports, based on A League of Their Own, the BAFTA-winning U.K. series.

The show pits two teams of three, captained by tennis champion and entrepreneur Venus Williams and Super Bowl champion Rob Gronkowski, alongside comedians Bobby Lee and Ian Karmel and rotating sports stars, comedians, and celebrities, against each other in over-the-top physical challenges, absurd trivia, and epic field competitions.

Tough as Nails is a competition series that celebrates everyday Americans who roll up their sleeves and don't think twice about working long, hard hours and getting their hands dirty in order to keep their country running.

Competitors who consider the calluses on their hands a badge of honor will be tested for their strength, endurance, and most importantly, mental toughness in challenges that take place in real-world job sites. The series is from Emmy Award-winning producer Phil Keoghan (The Amazing Race) and his producing partner, Louise Keoghan.



"These are two timely and entertaining series for summer," said Noriko Kelley, Executive Vice President, Program Planning and Scheduling, CBS Entertainment. "Game On! is funny, unpredictable, and feel good television; and Tough as Nails celebrates the hard-working heroes of America in a uniquely emotional and gritty real-world competition."

Don't miss the series premiere of Game On! when it airs on Wednesday, May 27 at 8/7c on CBS and CBS All Access.

Then, watch the series premiere of Tough as Nails on Wednesday, July 8 at 9/8c on CBS and CBS All Access.
