LARP-ing goes mainstream?

Coming July 31st to ABC is a new show called The Quest

The Executive Producer of The Lord of the Rings has joined forces with the creators and producers of The Amazing Race to conjure a land of magic and malevolence, where mythical creatures lurk in the woods. For 12 lucky souls, a fantastic world will come alive in a unique competition series where players will engage in epic challenges.

Is this the jump the shark moment for popular nerd culture? 

Is it going to be tongue in cheek like Knights of Bassassdom? Probably not but that movie died a horrible death in the theaters anyway.

My fear is it will appear more like Darkon with a bigger budget
