bear grylls man vs wild Bear Grylls' 'Get Out Alive' ordered by NBC for summer 2013For all of you “Man vs. Wild” fans out there, get ready — Bear Grylls will be back on your TV screens next summer for a new NBC survival competition show. “Get Out Alive” (working title) was announced Monday (Oct. 8), where Grylls will act as a guide for teams who are put through various tasks in the wilderness. The show is co-produced with Ben Silverman’s company Electus.

“‘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,” says Grylls.

Chris Grant, CEO of Electus, adds, “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.”

“Get Out Alive” is slated for a summer 2013 premiere. NBC has eight one-hour episodes.
