MUMBAI: Infotainment broadcaster History TV18 has announced its new series called ‘Alone’. Slated to air this summer, the series is being marketed as the boldest and longest survival experiment ever captured for television.
‘Alone’ will premiere in India on 4 July, two weeks after its US launch. Airing every Saturday at 9 pm, the series will place 10 hardcore survivalists alone in the Vancouver Island wilderness on a single mission to stay alive—no camera crew, no teams, no producers.
At stake is $500,000 which is to be awarded to the person who can last the longest. ‘Alone’ will air as a synchronized global TV event, airing in over 200 territories worldwide on History and other channels from the A+E Networks portfolio.
History VP development, programming Russ McCarroll said, “’Alone’ is a one-of-a-kind survival series that pits people against the unknown in complete isolation.
Without producers or camera crews following their every move, the survivalist experts are truly going off the grid to persevere with endurance.”
Carrying only what they can fit in a backpack, the survivalists are completely separated from one another in harsh, unforgiving terrain to hunt, build shelters, and fend off predators. They will face extreme isolation and psychological distress as they plunge into the unknown, self-documenting their experience.
