NBC has ordered a series starring celebrity survivalist Grylls, which will feature Grylls taking celebrities such as Efron, Tatum and Ben Stiller to remote wild locations for a 48-hour journey.
The one-hour series, “Running Wild With Bear Grylls,” will also include episodes featuring Deion Sanders, Tom Arnold and Tamron Hall.
“Each of the celebrities endure the harsh wilderness in high-octane, action-based and empowering journeys spread over six remote locations,” NBC said of the new offering, which Grylls created. “From skydiving into the Catskill Mountains, to repelling down the cliffs of Utah and battling torrential wind and rain in Scotland, Grylls and each celebrity will have to push both their minds and bodies to the limit to successfully complete their journey.”
“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,” added Grylls, who recently starred in “Get Out Alive with Bear Grylls” for NBC.
“Running Wild With Bear Grylls” will premiere July 28.
