nbc logo 2013 NBC picks up thriller 'Siberia' to fill out its summer scheduleNBC has picked up another scripted series to be part of its summer schedule, a suspense thriller called “Siberia.”

The show, which was presented to buyers at the MIPTV conference earlier in the spring, is about contestants on a reality show who encounter strange happenings on location in Tunguska, Siberia, the location of a huge meteor impact in 1908. They soon realized that the oddities are not a staged part of the production and have to work together to survive.

Matthew Arnold created the series, which will premiere at 10 p.m. ET Monday, July 1. NBC’s announcement makes no mention of any cast members.

“Siberia” joins three other scripted series on NBC’s summer schedule. The others are Anne Heche‘s comedy “Save Me” (premiering May 23), drama “Crossing Lines” (June 23) and the dramedy “Camp” (July 10), starring Rachel Griffiths.
