New Delhi : HistoryTV18 has announced its newest series, ‘Alone’, the longest survival experiment ever captured for television, slated to air this summer. Survival series Alone on HistoryTV18 will premiere in India on 4th July 2015 and will be aired every Saturday at 9 pm, two weeks after its US launch.
‘Alone’ will air as a synchronised global TV event, airing in over 200 territories worldwide on History and other channels from the A+E Networks portfolio.
This Survival series Alone on HistoryTV18 places 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 awarded to the person who can last the longest.
“‘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.
