Casting Call: BBC and Discovery Channel Seeking Participants For New Survival Show

BBC Worldwide Productions and the Discovery Channel have put out a casting call for a new survival series, and they've asked me to share it with readers at The Adventure Blog. According to the email I received from Safford Productions,  the show, which remains untitled at this time, will be a true test of survival, and not for the faint of hear. Here is the notice that was sent my way in its entirety.


BBC Worldwide Productions and the network that brought you ‘Naked and Afraid’, ‘Dual Survival’, and ‘Deadliest Catch’ are casting a unique, exciting, never before imagined survivalist series.

We are going big and looking for the best of the best — we are interested only in those who have the proven skills to last hour-to-hour, day-to-day, and week-to-week in an unforgiving, unpredictable, and untamed environment in one of the most remote parts of the world.

We are looking for a cast of individuals with varied backgrounds, from Boy Scouts to preppers, botanists to ex-military, medics, scientists, engineers, hunters and gatherers, and everything in between. You must be strong in character, quick thinking, highly competitive, methodical, resourceful and strategic.

This is not survival light! The mental strength and physical ability to persevere in the remote wilds of an unfamiliar territory WILL BE REQUIRED. You will be tested in a 24/7 live and interactive TV format, where viewers will be able to track your progress—and your failures. We are only interested in the real deal—casual weekend campers and reality show wannabes need not apply.

We challenge you to survive 42 days in the wild, relying on nothing but your skills, your smarts, and your will to survive.


For more information, call

There you have it folks. If you think you fit the bill, then contact the production company at the email or telephone number above. Good luck! Perhaps we'll all be watching you on TV soon.

Casting calls for a survival show? I wonder how many people would go for that. I remember watching a survival show with some guys and we were wondering how much they paid the camera man to do what he did. That must have been really hard for him to carry all the equipment he had and still do a good job filming.

I love survival show. I love watching how the characters work hard and struggle just to survive. I really want to try this casting call but I think this is not updated. I have also read an article about casting calls here and check their casting calls list. What do you think about it?

It has been my dream to be on a reality show like this one. Being on a survival show would be so cool in my opinion. Are there any qualifications one might need to be considered for this show?
