After the successful first season of Shanghai Rush, ICS is set to start production on a more ambitious follow-up series, China Rush

The shooting schedule will take place between the end of April 2010 and June 2010, with broadcasting dates running from August 15 until October 31. The program will be broadcast in English, with Chinese subtitles, and will be put together by an international production team. There will be 20 international contestants on 10 teams, all from diverse cultures and backgrounds. Throughout the series they will carry out a series of competitive tasks in order to find the ‘key’ to the following week’s episode. As this will be judged against the clock, one of the teams will be eliminated on a weekly basis. So it is not simply a test of individual capability, but also of emotional strength and teamwork. The eventual winners will receive a very special, mystery grand prize. China Rush will offer a unique platform to explore and promote Chinese culture through its great cities, perfectly complementing the 2010 Expo philosophy of ‘Better City, Better Life’.

China Rush will be broadcast at peak viewing hours, covering 4.4 million households and 10 million visitors to Shanghai during the Shanghai Expo. China Rush will not only be broadcast on ICS but will also be extensively promoted via other media outlets including the Internet, mobile phone text messaging, and billboard advertising.
