The Island (TV show) host Bear Grylls
"The Island" (TV show) on NBC is a thrilling man vs. nature adventure reality series.

Internationally acclaimed adventurer and survivalist Bear Grylls gives the modern American man the ultimate challenge. Can a man of today's world survive on a deserted island without the luxuries, or even the basics, of contemporary everyday life?

Based on the hit Shine TV-produced Channel 4 U.K. series of the same name, the NBC series doesn't include any of the usual reality show trappings. There are no prizes.
No eliminations. No winner. No camera teams. The entire series is filmed by the men themselves. The six episodes will show what happens when 14 American men are abandoned on a deserted island with only the clothes on their backs, minimal survival tools and committed to filming every moment themselves.

These 21st-century American men, who are accustomed to a roof over their head, restaurants and the benefits of technology, are stripped of all the modern conveniences and are catapulted back to their roots. They must hunt for food, source water, erect shelter, build community and try to survive using only their strength, determination and know-how. All of the men, including a stay-at-home dad, trauma surgeon, firefighter and criminal defense attorney, have something to prove to themselves and each other. This experiment takes them to the very edge of human endurance. They will test their physical, mental and emotional limits and fight for their very existence.

"The Island" is produced by Endemol Shine North America and Bear Grylls Ventures. The original U.K. series was produced by Shine TV. Bear Grylls, Eden Gaha, Michael Brooks, Holly Wofford and Delbert Shoopman serve as executive producers.
