NBC has a new extreme reality show in the works that is being co-produced by hottie Bear Grylls, formerly of Worst Case Scenario among several other projects. Get Out Alive (which is the working title) will “test teams of two beyond their most extreme imaginations,” says NBC. The network has ordered eight episodes of the series which is set to air next summer. Sounds like a more extreme version of Survivor… are we one step closer to The Hunger Games in real life?
“To meet Bear is to meet a force of nature,” says Paul Telegdy, NBC alternative president. “He is a magnetic and charismatic talent, whose infectious enthusiasm for adventure inspires people to push themselves beyond their limits. These contestants are in for the ride of their lives!”
The show is co-produced by Ben Silverman’s company, Electus. Chris Grant, the CEO of the company says, “Bear Grylls is still Bear Grylls. It’s not a show about cooking. But you’re still looking at him in a way you’ve never seen before. You’ve seen Bear do unbelievable things, but you haven’t seen how amazing he is in letting other people learn what they can do.”
Says Grylls, “Get Out Alive will be raw, tough and unrelenting, but it will also inspire and teach the essentials that one day may just save your life. The goal is to empower people with the ultimate in both survival and teamwork, and that brings incredible reward… but first there must be some pain.”
