NBC ORDERS NEW SERIES "RUNNING WILD WITH BEAR GRYLLS," SET TO PREMIERE MONDAY, JULY 28

Famed Adventurer/Survivalist to Take Zac Efron, Ben Stiller, Channing Tatum, Deion Sanders, Tom Arnold and Tamron Hall on Life-Changing Journeys

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. - June 19, 2014 - NBC has ordered six episodes of the hourlong alternative series "Running Wild with Bear Grylls," where the famed adventurer and survivalist will take celebrities into the most remote and wild locations in the U.S. and around the world for a 48-hour journey of a lifetime.

The series will premiere Monday, July 28 (8-9 p.m. ET/PT).

The celebrities who will be partnered one-on-one with Grylls in their own stand-alone episodes include actor Zac Efron ("Neighbors"), actor-director Ben Stiller ("The Secret Life of Walter Mitty"), actor Channing Tatum ("22 Jump Street"), NFL Hall of Famer Deion Sanders, actor Tom Arnold ("Sons of Anarchy") and MSNBC and "Today" anchor Tamron Hall.

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.

The show was created by Grylls, who recently starred on the NBC series "Get Out Alive with Bear Grylls."

"'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 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," said 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."

"Running Wild with Bear Brylls" is produced by Electus and Bear Grylls Ventures. Grylls will serve as executive producers along with Ben Silverman, Chris Grant, Corie Henson, Laura Caraccioli, Doug McCallie and Viki Cacciatore.

Bear Grylls Ventures (BGV), led by CEO Delbert Shoopman & CJ Cardenas, is a management and production company based out of Los Angeles. BGV manages all television, film, books, licensing and endorsement deals for Bear Grylls. The goal of the company is to develop and endorse projects that embrace adventure and inspire people to realize their dreams. Several product partners include Gerber Knives, Craghoppers, Bushnell, JIVO, F84 Games, Bear River and Kyocera.
