In today’s roundup, Josh Hutcherson shares behind-the-scenes action in an exclusive clip for “Future Man” and the Jim Henson Company is developing an animated show based on the IamElemental action figures.

FIRST LOOKS

Hulu  will premiere its new show “Future Man” on Nov. 14. The show, starring  Josh Hutcherson, Eliza Coupe, and Derek Wilson, features Hutcherson as a man whose video game skills mark him as the savior of humanity and lead to a time-travelling journey. Watch a behind the scenes clip of “Future Man” below, provided exclusively to Variety.

To celebrate the 30th season of “The Challenge,” MTV brought back the dirtiest and most unpredictable players in “The Challenge” history for the biggest prize ever: $1 million. Competing in Colombia, the challengers were put through the ringer in physical, mental, and social games that required them to face their fears and oftentimes double-cross each other on their way to the final. The remaining six players will now individually race for their share of the prize in the finale episode, airing Nov. 7 at at 10 p.m. on MTV. Watch an exclusive first look at the finale below:

PREMIERE DATES

Bravo will premiere its new reality show “Stripped” on  Dec. 5 at 10 p.m. ET/ PT. The show will follow a new family every week as they are willingly “stripped” of every piece of their clothing, furniture, money, hygiene, beauty products, and all electronic devices for 21 days. This is not a competition but a way to explore the American obsession of material goods and a way to reframe the idea of “need.” “Stripped” is produced by Truly Original with Steven Weinstock, Glenda Hersh, Lauren Eskelin, Michelle Schiefen, Todd Hurvitz, Cat Rodriguez, and Eric Gardner serving as executive producers.

DEVELOPMENT

The Jim Henson Company announced that it is developing an animated series based on the action figures by IAmElemental, the first-ever female action figures designed specifically for children. The deal will give The Jim Henson Company the opportunity to develop and produce the television series across all platforms. “At The Jim Henson Company, we have a tradition of creating strong female heroes in our past and current television and film franchises,” said Halle Stanford, President of Television at The Jim Henson Company. “Partnering with IAmElemental is incredibly exciting because it will be our first foray into the superhero genre with a cast of powerful young women at its core.  We are excited to introduce a unique and fresh superhero television series geared for children all over the world.” Stanford and Lisa Henson will be executive producers for the series.
