NBC has ordered a new docuseries, “Running Wild with Bear Grylls,” in which celebrities will travel with Bear Grylls to remote and wild locations. Then they’ll try to survive.

“‘Running Wild’ allows viewers to see inside the hearts and minds of these guests in a very open, honest and vulnerable way, pushing them out of their comfort zones and seeing what they are like in real life when stripped of all the benefits of celebrity,” Grylls says in a statement. “Ultimately, this show is about taking these stars on the adventure of a lifetime and being alongside them when they discover something new and empowering about themselves and their world. For me, that is always a privilege.”

“Running Wild with Bear Grylls” will premiere Monday, July 28 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on NBC.
