Bear Grylls takes celebrities into the wild in new NBC reality show
Survival specialist Bear Grylls is basically a living, breathing, accented guide to how to stay alive in the most extreme situations. And now, he’s going to share that knowledge with people you might recognize.
NBC has ordered six episodes of Running Wild with Bear Grylls, a new hour-long series in which Grylls will take celebrities into “remote and wild locations in the U.S. and around the world” for 48 hours. So far, the celebs lined up to have their own stand-alone episodes include Zac Efron, Ben Stiller, Channing Tatum, Deion Sanders, Tom Arnold, and The Today Show‘s Tamron Hall.
“Running Wild allows viewers to see inside the hearts and minds of these guests in a very open, honest and vulnerable way, pushing them out of their comfort zones and seeing what they are like in real life when stripped of all the benefits of celebrity,” Grylls said in a press release. “Ultimately, this show is about taking these stars on the adventure of a lifetime and being alongside them when they discover something new and empowering about themselves and their world. For me, that is always a privilege.”
And yes, there will be skydiving.
Running Wild with Bear Grylls premieres Monday, July 28 at 8 p.m. on NBC.
