Former U.S. Army General, Democratic Presidential contender and TV news regular Wesley Clark is getting his own show on NBC… and it isn’t what you think.

Clark will be the co-host (along with “Entertainment Tonight”‘s Samantha Harris) of a game show on NBC called “Stars Earn Stripes,” which the network describes as “a fierce and emotionally charged new competition show honoring America‚Äôs armed forces.”

The series features celebrities pairing up with law enforcement and military officers, with the celebs later put to the test in challenges to see what they learned from their mentors. Among the contestants is Todd Palin, the husband of Fox News contributor and former GOP VP nominee Sarah Palin. Palin will have some tough competition, as he goes up against singer Nick Lachey, actor Terry Crews (The Expendables), Olympic skier Picabo Street, boxing champ Laila Ali, actor Dean Cain, along with someone from “The Biggest Loser” and a WWE “Diva.”

The show is from producer Mark Burnett, who also produced “Sarah Palin’s Alaska” for TLC. Todd and Sarah’s daughter Bristol Palin is launching her own reality show on Lifetime this Summer.

“Stars Earn Stripes” debuts Monday, August 13, the day after the London Summer games ends. In other words, prepare to see a lot of promos for this show during the Olympics.
