And So It Begins

#1 - And So It Begins

Season 1 - Episode 1 - Aired Jun 18, 2015

Ten survival experts are dropped off in separate and extremely remote locations on Northern Vancouver Island. Equipped with only limited gear, their years of wilderness experience, and cameras to self-document their journeys, the men are completely isolated from one another as they struggle to live in the wild for as long as they can. Attempting to survive unaided in a thick and desolate rainforest presents immediate challenges to everyone. While each character battles to simply enter the dense forest and find a suitable base camp, they must also find water and make a shelter before night falls and temperatures drop. As the sun goes down, a new challenge presents itself: relentless rains and the struggle to build a fire without matches. Even worse, some find that water, shelter and fire are the least of their worries when the island's large predators wake from their dens and begin to stalk their new neighbors.
