DESCRIPTION: (from Spike TV's press release, June 2012) If the apocalypse comes at the end of 2012, Spike TV will have a part in the re-population of civilization thanks to its new competition reality show, "Last Family on Earth." The stakes could not be higher for the families who are vying for a spot in an underground state-of-the-art Vivos bunker that is fortified to withstand nearly any end-of-days disaster scenario. Produced by Pilgrim Studios, the six-episode one-hour series will premiere on Spike TV this fall, with the finale airing just in time for the family to move into their bunker, built by Vivos, the leader in this type of structure construction, and await the world's potential cataclysmic demise on December 21, as predicted by the Mayan calendar. The families chosen to participate come from a wide variety of backgrounds and are among the 15% of the world's population, according to a recent Reuters poll, who believe the end of civilization is near.
