French production company Upside Television has sold its “Intercity” format to TVS for the Pax Network.

The show produced by White Mountain will air next spring in the U.S. as “The Ultimate Challenge”

Adapted from a 20-year-old game show, the format pits teams from two cities against each other in a series of physical and mental challenges. In a new reality spin on the original formula TV audiences get to choose the team members.

The format has already sold to Portugal and Germany and deals for another 20 countries including France are pending, the company said.
