BASKING RIDGE, N.J., June 30, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Launching July 1, The Runner is a groundbreaking new reality competition played out over the course of a 30-day period on go90 and AOL.com.  The Series comes from Executive Producers Ben Affleck and Matt Damon, through their production company Pearl Street Films; Adaptive Studios and Executive Producers Perrin Chiles and Marc Joubert; and Pilgrim Media Group, with Craig Piligian executive producing.

Hosted by Matthew Patrick (aka "MatPat"), creator of YouTube series Game Theory, and featuring VICE News journalist, producer and media commentator Kaj Larsen as the on-camera expert, The Runner challenges one person to make it across America while the entire country hunts him or her down for a chance to cash in on over one million dollars in prize money.

Said Affleck and Damon in a joint statement, "We're thrilled for the opportunity to launch the first-ever, real-time competition show produced with the mobile viewer in mind that enables everyone to get in on the chase and [receive] prizes through social media. We're proud to be bringing The Runner to go90, and to be part of a new kind of entertainment experience."

Chip Canter, GM of Digital Entertainment at Verizon, said, "The Runner raises the stakes for reality series in the streaming video space. Real-time captured footage, lightning speed editing, three action-packed episodes daily and interactive viewer participation is a first for online and television. It aligns perfectly with our vision for go90, which is to push the boundaries on mobile and digital entertainment to suit our audience." 

Added Piligian, executive producer and Pilgrim Media Group CEO, "The Runner marks a milestone in the evolution of competition programming. Not only are we bringing broadcast-quality production, live elements and audience interaction to a new level of intensity, but we're also bringing those components to a social media platform. We are using every tool at our disposal to create a massively entertaining and exciting viewer experience that we hope will help expand the scope of reality competition.
