The Island premiered on NBC on May 25, 2015. Bear Grylls gives the modern American man the ultimate challenge. Can a man of today's world survive on a deserted island without the luxuries - or even the basics - of contemporary everyday life? There are no prizes. No eliminations. No winner. No producers. The six episodes will leave 14 American men isolated on a deserted island with only the clothes on their backs and minimal survival tools, committed to filming every moment themselves. These 21st-century American men, who are accustomed to a roof over their head, restaurants and the benefits of technology, are stripped of all modern conveniences and sent back to their roots. They must hunt and gather food, erect shelter and try to survive using only their strength and know-how. All of the men, including a stay-at-home dad, a trauma surgeon, a firefighter and a criminal defense attorney, have something to prove to themselves... and each other. They will test their physical, mental and emotional limits and fight for their very existence. This is the raw, unfiltered and uncensored story of 14 men, as told exclusively by them.
