“The Quest is an immersive, hybrid competition reality series that drops eight real-life teenagers (Paladins) into the fantastic, fictional world of Everealm, where they must save a kingdom by fulfilling an ancient prophecy.

“What makes The Quest so unique is that it’s a true hybrid of scripted and reality,” said Elise Doganieri and Bertram van Munster, executive producers from New Media Collective and creators of The Amazing Race. “It’s a groundbreaking new genre where we place real teenagers in a reality competition and bring them into a fully realized fantasy world that is built on a scripted mythology of intrigue and adventure played out alongside actors for a completely immersive experience”
“We were very focused on the aesthetic of the show, from production design through costume design, making sure that everything felt authentic,” Eric continued in a joint statement with Scout Productions’ Michael Williams. “We wanted both our Paladins and our audience to feel immersed in the epic world we created.”
“We’re doing something magical that has never been done at this level,” said executive producers Jane Fleming and Mark Ordesky (The Lord of the Rings) from Court Five. “We’re taking real people and putting them in a fully-realized fantasy story, conceived and built by incredible artisans in every department. “It’s an immersive, real-life hero’s journey for these eight normal teenagers, who transform before your very eyes. It’s an exciting new form of storytelling.”
