In an ode to ABC's "Wide World of Sports,"
100 TV stars from 14 different network and cable companies will take their athleticism to a new level as they compete--to feel "the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat"--in the revival of "Battle of the Network Stars,"
based on the '70s and '80s television pop-culture classic.
"Battle Of The Network Stars" premieres June 29 at 9 p.m. (EDT) on ABC.
The hosts for "Battle of the Network Stars" are Mike Greenberg and Joe Tessitore (ESPN). Cassidy Hubbarth and Cari Champion (ESPN)
will be the sideline reporters.
In addition, Super Bowl 50 winner DeMarcus Ware
and MMA fighter/Olympian Ronda Rousey
