Million Dollar Mile Plot: What is it about?
Million Dollar Mile is not the typical and ordinary obstacle-based competition. It pushes the limits of the participants until the maximum possible extent. In this unscripted show, the set bar is very high, the concept is one-of-its-kind, and the challenges are definitely difficult. What’s more, participants have to face new, shocking twists in the midst of the course — which takes them completely by surprise.
Million Dollar Mile features contestants who participate in a high-stakes competition and stand the golden opportunity to win a grand amount of $1,000,000 if they win. However, when they run this one-mile course, they face the most difficult challenges — particularly designed by a team of internationally recognized, elite athletes — the Defenders — who have only one mission — not to allow the contestants to be successful under any circumstance.
Million Dollar Mile Season 1 Release Date: When will it premiere?
Million Dollar Mile premieres on March 27, 2019, at 9 p.m. ET/PT on CBS. The first season comprises a total of ten episodes. So, all those who are fan of marathons or athletic sports, this is a perfect show for you to get inspired.
