Siberia-New NBC Scripted Series For July


Thoughts?

quote:

NBC has added another show in its summer lineup: Siberia, a drama about contestants in a reality show gone wrong. Set to premiere July 1 at 10 p.m., Siberia is reportedly a spooky adventure thriller reminiscent of Lost, set in a remote Siberian territory.

Jeff Bader, NBC Entertainment's president of program planning, strategy, and research, believes Siberia's combination of survival drama and mystery will compel viewers. "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," Bader told The Hollywood Reporter.

The Hollywood Reporter offers a more detailed synopsis: Sixteen contestants descend on Siberia's Tunguska not knowing the land's mysterious past (it was hit with a meteorite 100 years prior). When a contestant is badly injured and no help arrives, the contestants realize that strange occurrences are not part of the reality show. With their safety threatened, the contestants are forced to work together to survive.

Siberia hails from Infinity Films with Sierra/Engine Television and Welldone Productions. Michael Ohove, Slava Jakovleff and Chris Philip serve as executive producers, with Matthew Arnold as creator.

I wish they had done Survivor as a real wilderness survival contest instead of the bull shite show it turned out to be.

I'm gonna take the wait and see approach on this one. If it gets some critical acclaim, regardless of ratings, I might give it a stab. I'm skeptical, though.

OK, so first locate 16 uninformed morons. Easy enough.

So it's pretending to be a reality show like the office pretended to be a documentary or it's some scripted reality show like Laguna Beach and those MTV shows?

It sounds promising. Probably because I'm fascinated with Tunguska.

Pretending to be a reality show.
I actually know someone involved in it. Sounds promising, but we will see.

the plot sounds pretty interesting, but i like to keep my hopes super low for any TV shows that have a potentially good plot, especially if they are on NBC

I'll check it out, seems weird. I doubt I'm going to like the filming style of it.

Because the summary doesn't cover it accurately.

The place was leveled as if a nuke hit it, but there was never an impact crater.

The assumption was of a meteor that exploded before impact.
