"OUTBACK JACK is a hilarious and engaging reality series that will really appeal to our targeted young-adult audience and complement our other high-profile programming, including the recently acquired blockbuster comedy Sex and the City," said Steve Koonin, executive vice president and chief operating officer of TBS and TNT. "And we're thrilled to have Bruce Nash on board for this project, lending his incredible talent at taking popular reality formulas to exciting new levels."
"We are thrilled to be working with TBS as we explore new directions to take reality programming," said Nash. "We have been casting for this series since early this year to find the perfect hero of the Outback, as well as 12 very pampered women to vie for his affections. The fish-out-of-water comedy elements combined with romance and adventure are going to make for plenty of unexpected twists and turns. It is going to be quite a ride for both the women competing and the viewers watching."
At only 28 years of age, OUTBACK JACK leading man Vadim Dale has already accomplished an amazing collection of feats. The East Melbourne native has earned numerous titles and medals in swimming, judo, karate, grappling, football and horseback riding. An accomplished mountain climber, he climbed 7,000 meters to the Mount Thurong peak. In addition, he is a tri-athlete, an avid trail bike racer, white water rafter and skydiver.
Nash is one of the most creative and prolific producers in television.
His company, Nash Entertainment, is responsible for some of the top-rated
reality programs on television and is expanding into scripted series, with
such recently announced projects as If the South Won the Civil War and
The Real Thing, as well as several feature film projects in development.
