You can choose how to kill off Bear Grylls in a new Netflix interactive show
Now this is something I can get behind
Last week, Netflix announced plans to create more interactive shows on the platform, following the recent success of the Black Mirror episode, Bandersnatch. And it looks like they're not going to all be doom and gloom like Black Mirror, as the first interactive series to be announced is a new Bear Grylls interactive Netflix show, called You vs Wild.
In the show, viewers will be able to make decisions for Bear Grylls, taking control of adventures. Think does he jump off this mountain, should he drink his own piss to survive, should he eat this unidentified bug kinda choices.
Anyway, here's all the information you need about the new Bear Grylls interactive Netflix show.
Everything we know about the Bear Grylls interactive Netflix show
The show is called You vs Wild, and is hosted by British adventurer, Bear Grylls. It is an eight episode Netflix original series, airing next month.
The show has been directed by Ben Simms, and has Bear Grylls, Chris Grant, Drew Buckley, Ben Silverman, Howard Owens, Rob Buchta and Delbert Shoopman among its producers.
In the trailer, if you chose to answer Bear Grylls' FaceTime, because yes – it's interactive, he says: "You're going to be in charge, so get packing, get ready – because every jungle, desert, mountain that I'm in, every decision is your decision."
If you then decide to take him up on his offer of helping him through the show, it's framed as the viewer being in a battle of survival with Bear. On the Netflix site, the show is described as an interactive series that allows you to "make decisions to help Bear Grylls survive, thrive and complete missions in the harshest environments on Earth."
