FremantleMedia and Applicaster Release App for ‘Master Athletes’

masterathletes.jpgToday, FremantleMedia and Applicaster announced a partnership to create a companion app to “Master Athletes,” a reality format that’s been popular in Sweden and is being introduced at MIPCOM in Cannes next week.

The show is intense. From the release:

24 ultra-fit members of the public who prepare themselves for a grueling 10-week challenge. They live, eat, sleep and train together in the Master Athletes Village where relationships develop, alliances are formed and the intense battle begins.
