Synopsis

Famed adventurer and survivalist Bear Grylls takes celebrities into the wildest and most remote locations in the world for a 48-hour journey of a lifetime.  The celebrities who are be partnered one-on-one with Grylls in their own stand-alone episodes include actress Kate Winslet (“Titanic”), actor Zac Efron ("Neighbors"), actress Kate Hudson (“Almost Famous”), actor-director Ben Stiller ("The Secret Life of Walter Mitty"), actor and comedian Ed Helms (“The Hangover”), actor Channing Tatum ("22 Jump Street"), actress Michelle Rodriguez (“Furious 7”), among many others.  Each of the celebrities endures the harsh wilderness in high-octane, action-based and empowering journeys in remote locations. From skydiving into the Catskill Mountains, to rappelling down the cliffs of Utah and battling torrential wind and rain in Scotland, Grylls and each celebrity 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 with Bear Grylls" is produced by Electus and Bear Grylls Ventures. Grylls will serve as executive producer along with Ben Silverman, Chris Grant, Corie Henson, Laura Caraccioli, Doug McCallie and Viki Cacciatore.
