'Australian Spartan' show to be filmed in Queensland.

QUEENSLAND will play host to Channel 7's Australian Spartan, with two series of the new show set to film in Brisbane next month.

The network has confirmed the obstacle course-based challenge show would be set on a secret location in Brisbane after Confidential tipped last month that Brisbane and the Gold Coast were being considered by network executives.

Queenslanders have been invited to be part of the live audience at no cost, with filming due to take place from December 11 to 22.

The Spartan Race is the basis for Channel 7’s new fitness show Australian Spartan.

Contestants - selected teams of friends, families and co-workers from around Australia - will race across Spartan courses at what will be dubbed the Brisbane Spartan Arena.

The show, produced by Matchbox Pictures and Eureka Productions and based on the global fitness phenomenon Spartan Race, is considered Channel 7's answer to 9's Australian Ninja Warrior.

Audience members will be asked to sign a confidentiality agreement until the show goes to air, with the first series expected to debut next year.
