This month, Kansas City welcomes back American Ninja Warrior to film the competition’s qualifying regionals. Kansas City is one of six cities that will host regional tryouts in Season 9 of the heart-racing obstacle course television series. The episodes will tape April 24-25 at Union Station and will premiere July 2017 on NBC.
The series is executive-produced by A. Smith & Co. Productions’ founders Arthur Smith and Kent Weed (Hell’s Kitchen, Wizard Wars, Ellen’s Design Challenge), along with Brian Richardson and Anthony Storm.
“We couldn’t be more excited to have American Ninja Warrior return to Kansas City,” said Executive Producer Kent Weed, president of A. Smith & Co. Productions. “We had such an outpouring of support from the fans and city in our first visit back in season seven, that it was a no brainer to come back to one of our most popular cities on the ANW tour. In season nine, the course is brand new and more challenging than ever before and we anticipate some great performances from the athletes that will compete.” To Read More, visit KCFilmOffice.com
