As we reported back in October, USA Network is bringing back WWE Tough Enough as its first reality series in 5 years. The top cable network this morning announced it has given a ten-episode order to the a non-scripted series, which will be produced by Shed Media USA in collaboration with World Wrestling Entertainment. The show, featuring 12 contestants vying for the grand prize, a contract with WWE, will debut on April 4, the day after WrestleMania XXVII and immediately following USA’s staple WWE Monday Night Raw at 11 PM. It will then move to its regularly scheduled slot, Mondays at 8 PM. WWE Tough Enough originally ran on MTV for 3 seasons, and in 2004 it moved to UPN where it aired for a season as part of SmackDown. USA has been actively looking to re-enter the reality arena, beefing up its unscripted executive team and developing concepts for new series.
