Bear Grylls scores 'extreme' NBC reality show gig
Bear Grylls is ready for his next adventure.
NBC has greenlit “Get Out Alive” — an “extreme adventure reality-competition series” headlined by Grylls, the network announced Oct. 8. The “Man vs. Wild” star’s new gig comes after he parted ways with Discovery earlier this year over a contract dispute.
“Get Out Alive” will “test teams of two beyond their most extreme imaginations in the wild,” according to NBC.
“‘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,“ Grylls said in a statement. “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.”
The show is slated to premiere in summer 2013. NBC has ordered eight episodes.
