American Ninja Warrior


“They held a season with COVID safety measures in place and is currently airing for several more weeks. It was a smaller season but still managed to capture what makes the show great and why it continues to be a growing sport and fan base around the world. Several competitors live in Colorado and we held a panel back in 2019. Motivating stories, incredible acts of strength and agility on diabolical obstacle courses. A great family show!” — ryan.stratis
