‘The Quest’

Proceed with caution, ye reality-television viewers. Although this new competition series comes from the producers of “The Lord of the Rings” franchise and “The Amazing Race,” I sense a disturbingly high cheese factor here. Twelve contestants will enter the world of Everealm (“a world of magic and malevolence”), to engage in “epic challenges” as they try to emerge as a “real-life hero.” Don’t say you haven’t been warned. 8 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 1, on ABC (seattletimes.com/tvlistings).
