Dick Wolf, Mark Burnett
Veteran producers Dick Wolf and Mark Burnett are teaming up for a military-style reality series for NBC, according to Deadline.
Tentatively titled Stars Earn Stripes, the project will feature nine celebrities at a top-notch military training center who are each paired with a trainer to prepare them for the tasks ahead. Each week, the stars will compete in rigorous challenges adapted from real exercises practiced in the military. Prize money will be donated to a military charity of the celebrity's choice.
"I think this is a unique opportunity to pay a tribute to our troops and first responders, who put their lives on the line everyday," Wolf said.

Burnett added: "Stars Earn Stripes is a high-energy, fun action show, but at its heart, it is all about those five words: 'Thank you for your service.' Our celebrities are going to experience the high adrenaline that Special Forces and law enforcement encounter and will realize how very hard and scary it is to do those jobs."
The project marks the first unscripted series for Wolf since the docu-series Crime & Punishment, which he executive-produced from 2002 to 2004.
