NBC Heads to SiberiaNBC has snagged the new dramatic series Siberia for premiere this summer. The network picked up the show from Sierra/Engine Television and Infinity Films and is planning a July 1, 2013 premiere at 10pm.
“NBC immediately saw the potential in Siberia and this acquisition truly exemplifies the quality of this groundbreaking series. We are excited to bring it to their viewers,” said executive producer Chris Philip, CEO for Sierra/Engine Television.
“We created the series as a dramatic human experiment shot under difficult conditions and we are thrilled to see it on NBC,” added Oscar-nominated producer Ohoven of Infinity Films.
“The concept of survival, when mysterious elements are at play, makes for a compelling show,” said Jeff Bader, President, Program Planning, Strategy and Research for NBC Entertainment. “We believe a scripted series that offers an insightful behind-the-scenes view of how a reality concept comes together — especially when things don’t go according to plan — will connect with our audience in a very satisfying way.”

When a contestant is badly injured and no help arrives, the contestants are met with the chilling realization that the strange occurrences are not part of the show. With their safety threatened, competing contestants must band together in an effort to survive.
