Bear Grylls, NBC Hope to 'Get Out Alive'

You've seen Bear Grylls eat and crawl into a dead camel, drink his own urine, drink liquid from elephant dung, and even eat a live snake.

With "Get Out Alive," the former British Special Forces soldier turned reality survivor will attempt to impart his extreme survival instincts and knowledge on contestants who must endure wilderness tests to advance in what sounds like a mix between "Fear Factor" and Grylls' own "Man vs Wild."

Producers behind the show promise that if you have enjoyed Grylls' work on Discovery's "Man vs Wild," you'll love what's in store for the gruff but affable survivor. "Bear Grylls is still Bear Grylls," said Chris Grant, CEO of Electus. "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' will be raw, tough and unrelenting, but it will also inspire and teach the essentials that one day may just save your life,” Grylls said. “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.”

Oh, there will be pain...
