Following their success with “Black Mirror: Bandersnatch,” streaming giant Netflix has announced the next live-action project that will utilise the same ‘Choose Your Own Adventure’-style technology.
That project? “You vs. Wild,” a survival reality show hosted by Bear Grylls. In fact, the project has already been shot with the streamer setting an April 10th launch date and releasing the first trailer below.
In the series, the viewer joins Grylls on his various adventures in the wild. However, instead of Grylls telling you the best way to do things to survive, the viewer gets to make the decisions. This means you and Grylls will probably be killed many times but whether it will be a polite fade to black or brutal skewering ala the “Tomb Raider” game reboots, we’ll have to wait and see.
Grylls says in a statement: “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. The stakes are high in this one!”
