MTV And Channel 5 Going Back To The Stone Age
New show 10,000BC will strip contestants of modern conveniences...
It's hard enough for most of us to go without wi-fi for more than an hour or so, but contestants in a new MTV and Channel 5 joint production are going to have to suffer much worse than that.
Titled 10,000BC, the show will see hopefuls stripped of all their modern gadgets and conveniences, then forced to hunt for their own food as they live like our Stone Age ancestors.
The contestants will apparently be "pushed to the limits of endurance" as they take part in the show, which is set to air next year.
A main 60-minute show will be shown on Channel 5, with a spin-off show screened on MTV UK.
Simon Raikes, Channel 5's Commissioning Editor: Factual, said: "This is a remarkable fusion of social experiment and living history, it brings to Channel 5 the best of both worlds in one unmissable series that finally makes history fun and gives entertainment a purpose."
And MTV VP of Commissioning and Production Steve Regan said it was perfect for the MTV demographic, with viewers keen to see people "coping with extreme circumstances".
