The shows, both produced by NBC Digital Entertainment in partnership with “American Ninja Warrior” producer A. Smith & Co, are called “Crashing the Course” and “24/B4.”

The report dished that the first weekly series, which is hosted by MTV’s “Greatest Party Story Ever’s” Alex Weber, “will explore how each obstacle is designed, constructed and tested, leading up to the moment when the first “American Ninja Warrior” competitor takes the course.”

Meanwhile, the second one will dig into the personal life of one competitor each week.

According to A. Smith & Co., executive producer for “Crashing the Course” and “24/B4” Kent Weed, the new digital shows will give the audience the opportunity to have a glimpse of what is going on behind the scenes and how each obstacle came into being “while also profiling top Ninjas as they prepare to conquer the course and punch their ticket to the Las Vegas finals.”

In the meantime, People reported that Jessie Graff is channelling the Wonder Woman in her as she tries to hurdle all new obstacles of “American Ninja warrior” in the DC Comics superheroine’s costume, with an announcer narrating in the background that “No woman went farther than she did last season.”
