NBC has given the green light to "Get Out Alive" working title, a new, larger-than-life and extreme adventure reality-competition series headlined by world-renowned adventurer Bear Grylls, to be co-produced by Bear Grylls Ventures and Ben Silverman's multimedia studio, Electus. The move to NBC for "Get Out Alive" marks the first time the international television star will debut on network television. The show will test teams of two beyond their most extreme imaginations in the wild. NBC has ordered eight episodes of the series, with additional creative details to be revealed at a later date.

In the season finale, the three remaining teams encounter their final challenge -- a wet rainforest amidst torrential downpour that pushes each of them to their limits. In the end, survival expert Bear Grylls selects the winning team that has shown the most heart, courage, initiative and resolve in their quest to "get out alive" and will claim a life-changing grand prize of $500,000.
