Glenn Beck and Vince Vaughn are going into the reality TV business together. The former Fox News host and the actor-producer will be executive producers of Pursuit Of The Truth, a competition series for Beck’s online network TheBlaze.

TheBlaze, Vaughn’s Wild West Picture Show Prods and Go Go Lucky Entertainment will produce the show, which will see 20 contestants fight for the prize of financing and global distribution for their documentary feature. “Our goal is to create a powerful annual platform to help filmmakers tell important and engaging stories,” said Wild West’s Peter Billingsley.
