ALONE - The Boldest and Longest Survival Experiment on TV to Premiere as Synchronized Global TV Event
HISTORY TV18 brings to audiences a one-of-its-kind survival series
HISTORY TV18 announced its newest series, ALONE, the boldest and longest survival experiment ever captured for television, slated to air this summer. The show will premiere in India on 4th July, every Saturday at 9PM – just two weeks after its US launch. This series places ten 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 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.
“ALONE is a one-of-a-kind survival series, that pits people against the unknown in complete isolation,” said Russ McCarroll, VP Development & Programming, HISTORY. “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. The series is the ultimate test of man’s will to survive.
