Our favourite adventurer Bear Grylls is going to return to our screen, well in America with a new show on NBC. The new show will be a different format from his previous appearances with two teams going head to head in extreme wild conditions. The first season will feature 8 episodes.
Paul Telegdy the President of Alternative and Late Night Programming at NBC Entertainment gave a typical gung-ho quote. “To meet Bear is to meet a force of nature,” said “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!” Ye Ha!
Bear was a little more reserved “The programme will be raw, tough and unrelenting, but it will also inspire and teach the essentials that one day may just save your life. 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 of corse is sponsored by Craghoppers, so he’ll be donning his Craghoppers gear which you can buy online.
