nbc NBC greenlights adventure thriller 'Siberia'

36 posts in this topic

NBC has ordered a scripted series for summer about a reality show gone way bad.

Siberia, which will bow July 1 at 10 p.m., is about a group of contestants who arrive in a remote Siberian territory of Tunguska where a meteor hit back in 1908. When a player is badly hurt and no help arrives, the 16 contestants realize the strange occurrences on the island are not part of the show.

?The concept of survival, when mysterious elements are at play, makes for a compelling show,? said Jeff Bader, President, Program Planning, Strategy and Research for NBC Entertainment, in a statement. ?We believe a scripted series that offers an insightful behind-the-scenes view of how a reality concept comes together ? especially when things don?t go according to plan ? will connect with our audience in a very satisfying way.?

Looks pretty interesting, but with a premise like this I wonder how many seasons they can get out of it. After maybe 2 or 3, it's got to explain a lot of what is really happening and kind of shift its focus. But it does look kinda cool and weird.

I think it's just a one season thing to show during the Summer

Ye, don't see how this can stay on the air longer than one season. Maybe even get canceled before the end of the season.

NBC will have nothing on so they will show the full season probably unless its abysmal ratings

Ye it s a good point. If they don't have anything else then we can get stuck with a crappy show just because of that :)

Wait a sec, what island?

It does sound an interesting show though, and I'll probably watch it!

Hmm, the "reality show" approach of it is a bit off for me (this coming from a Survivor fan). Almost 2/3 of the first episode was used to set up the reality show feel. I'll probably wait and see if the next episode are engaging enough. The plot is interesting, though.
