You decide Bear Grylls’ fate in the You Vs. Wild trailer
Netflix has released the trailer for its next interactive adventure, You Vs. Wild. The eight-episode series has viewers following survivalist/host Bear Grylls (Man vs. Wild and Running Wild) as he forages through uncharted terrain. The twist is you decide what he does, leaving his fate completely in your hands. You can check out the trailer in the post below!
“I’m so proud to deliver this first-of-its-kind live-action interactive series, really giving viewers an all-access pass to explore the world and its landscapes in my boots,” Grylls said in a statement. “The stakes are high in this one!”
The series will be directed by Ben Simms (Shark Tank) and executive produced by Grylls, Chris Grant (Bear Grylls: Face the Wild), Drew Buckley (Wrong Man), Ben Silverman (Lore), Howard Owens (Charmed), Rob Buchta (Running Wild) and Delbert Shoopman (The Island with Bear Grylls) and will be produced through Electus and Bear Grylls Ventures.
Netflix has found a lot of success in the interactive field in the past couple of years with specials and animated children’s series leading up to the sci-fi anthology standalone film Black Mirror: Bandersnatch that debuted on December 28 to generally positive reviews from critics and audiences, though the format was also criticized for going against the series’ general themes. While the streaming service is notorious for not releasing viewer data, it has previously discussed by Netflix as a large viewer success.
You vs. Wild is set to hit Netflix on April 10.
