Mauro Ranallo hosting CBS reality series 'Beyond the Edge'

Nine celebrities will be competing on the show.

Former WWE commentator Mauro Ranallo is the host of a new celebrity reality series on CBS.

CBS has announced that the Ranallo-hosted reality series "Beyond the Edge" will premiere on Wednesday, March 16 at 9 p.m. Eastern time. Episodes will be an hour long.

The show will feature nine celebrities "trading their worlds of luxury to live in the dangerous jungles of Panama, where they face off in epic adventures and endure the most brutal conditions, as they push themselves to go far beyond their comfort zone."

Lauren Alaina, Ray Lewis, Craig Morgan, Metta World Peace, Paulina Porizkova, Mike Singletary, Jodie Sweetin, Colton Underwood, and Eboni K. Williams are the celebrities competing on the series. They will be raising money for their chosen charities on the show.

Ranallo is an announcer for Showtime Sports. Last April, he returned to pro wrestling commentary to call Kenny Omega and Rich Swann's title vs. title match at Impact Wrestling's Rebellion pay-per-view.

Here's the full description for "Beyond the Edge," along with the trailer for the show:

For two weeks, the celebrities will see if they have the grit to withstand torrential downpours, scorching heat and deadly wildlife while living in the exotic Panama jungle. There won’t be any judges or eliminations – instead, each celebrity must rely on their inner fortitude, physical ability, and courage, and have faith in their teammates to endure in the wild. For each day they last, and every grueling adventure challenge they win with their team, the celebrities will raise more money for their charities. If a player reaches their breaking point, they can ring a bell to signal that they are ready to go home. At the end of the 14 days, the top two earners will go head to head in one final adventure, to see who can become the BEYOND THE EDGE champion and take home the most money for their charity.
