Bear Grylls is leaving the confines of the Discovery Channel for a new reality show gig on NBC titled Get Out Alive, according to TV By The Numbers. The network has ordered eight episodes of the show, which will begin airing in the summer of 2013. The show will "test teams of two beyond their most extreme imaginations in the wild," according to the network.
“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," said Grylls in a press release. "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.”
It is assumed that Grylls will serve as the host of the show as his experience on the survival series, Man vs. Wild, has given him credibility with the network to succeed here.
