Jai Courtney to host Channel 9’s The Summit

Jai Courtney, the Australian actor and Hollywood star, will be the host of Channel 9’s brand new adventure program, The Summit, in 2023.

Star of The Suicide Squad, Terminator Genisys and The Divergent Series, Courtney is one of our most versatile actors, with a career spanning more than 15 years.

As one of Hollywood’s most in-demand actors, he was recently seen in Prime Video’s action thriller series The Terminal List alongside Chris Pratt.

Set amid the magical mountains of New Zealand’s South Island, The Summit is an epic action-adventure in one of the most beautiful locations on earth, the backdrop to some of the world’s biggest movie franchises.

Courtney will be joined by 14 strangers as they set out with backpacks containing an equal share of one million dollars. They must reach the peak of a distant mountain in 14 days to win the massive amount of cash.

Along the journey they’ll need to work as a team as they tackle dangerous terrain, wild weather conditions, and overcome adrenaline-charged challenges that block their path to the mountain peak – the holy grail.
 
In this thrilling marathon of endurance, survival and greed, morals will be severely tested, physical limits pushed to breaking point, and bonds busted. How many of these 14 mega-money chasers will reach the enticing summit in time – and who will walk away with the cash bulging in their backpacks?
 
This blockbuster challenge is a prime time event series filled with cliff-hangers. Welcome to The Summit … where getting up is just the beginning. 
 
The Summit is a 9Network and Endemol Shine Australia (A Banijay company) original series, produced by Endemol Shine Australia.
