UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. – October 8, 2012 –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 Silvermanʼs 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. “Get Out Alive” is set to air in primetime in
“To meet Bear is to meet a force of nature,” said Paul Telegdy, President, Alternative and Late Night Programming, NBC
Entertainment. “He is a magnetic and charismatic talent, whose infectious enthusiasm for adventure inspires people to
push themselves beyond their limits. These contestants are in for the ride of their lives!”
“ʻGet Out Aliveʼ 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. “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.”
“Bear is the most exciting talent in the world of survival adventure today — there is simply no one like him,” said Chris
Grant, CEO of Electus. “To be able to partner with Bear and the rest of his team is a dream come true. I believe that the
synergies between our two companies are limitless and we are very excited to make programming with Bear for NBC.”
Gryllsʼ passion for the outdoors was forged during his childhood in the U.K on the Isle of Wight where his late father
taught him to climb and sail. Trained from a young age in martial arts, Grylls went on to spend three years as a soldier in
the British Special Forces, serving with 21 SAS. Despite a free-fall parachuting accident in Africa where he broke his
back in three places, Grylls went on to become one of the youngest climbers ever to reach the summit of Mount Everest.
Today, Grylls is perhaps best known for his international TV series “Man vs. Wild” (known as “Born Survivor” in the
U.K.), which has achieved a global audience of over 1.2 billion followers and author of his #1 best-selling book “Mud,
Sweat and Tears.”
