Discovery Channel, India’s leading destination for factual entertainment, has started the search for citizen heroes who want to change India for the better. Discovery channel has brought onboard ex-military specialists who will shortlist and train 10 citizen heroes, aka change agents of the society. The shortlisted citizen heroes will feature in an atypical military based show India’s Citizen Squad to be aired in the month of November 2018.

Guided by ex-military specialists, India’s Citizen Squad, comprising of 10 ordinary citizens, will under-go ultimate endurance boot camp - a series of intense physical and mental challenges pushing the limits of their body and mind. This is not your typical elimination driven reality show, it is a test against self to see if the mind has the will and strength to push the body to complete the challenges. The chosen India’s Citizen Squad will have to accomplish a new dare-devil mission in each episode of the show.

The steps for participation for the call for entry, starting August 1, are as follows:

1. Log on to
2. Upload a 60 seconds video of 20 sit ups, 20 squats and 20 push ups all in 60 seconds
3. Take a 5 minutes online psychographic test
4. Fill the detailed form and submit the responses
In a crowd of silent faces, are you the one?
India’s Citizen Squad will premiere on Discovery Channel, Discovery World HD and on Veer by Discovery, India’s first dedicated military channel available on YouTube.
