Scott Free Non Fiction, the unscripted division of Ridley Scott’s Scott Free, has partnered with TV personality Bill Rancic for a reality series project. Titled Training Day, the project, which is being taken out, will feature Rancic testing his mettle in adrenaline-charged training sessions for the country’s most dangerous jobs. In the vein of Dirty Jobs, Rancic will embed with tough men and women — from ice road truckers to SWAT teams — to get a firsthand look at the grueling work and prove he has what it takes to perform at an elite level … and survive. Scott and Rancic will executive produce with Giannina Facio, Mary Lisio and Colet Abedi. On the unscripted side, Scott Free most recently produced the series Crimes of the Century for CNN.
