Bear Grylls will be taking celebrities on wild adventures in the new NBC series Running Wild with Bear Grylls, an hour-long show premiering on July 28, 2014 at 8pm ET/PT. The six episode show will feature Channing Tatum, Zac Efron, Ben Stiller, Deion Sanders, Tom Arnold, and Tamron Hall, each of whom will get their own episode taking place over 48 jam-packed hours.
“Running Wild allows viewers to see inside the hearts and minds of these guests in a very open, honest and vulnerable way, pushing them out of their comfort zones and seeing what they are like in real life when stripped of all the benefits of celebrity,” said series creator Grylls. “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.”
“Bear’s incredible spirit is absolutely contagious, not only with his celebrity partners but with the viewing audience as well,” stated Paul Telegdy, President, Alternative and Late Night Programming, NBC Entertainment. “We can’t wait to see how these epic adventures will profoundly change those who take the challenge.”
Each of the celebrities endure the harsh wilderness in high-octane, action-based and empowering journeys spread over six remote locations. 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.
