Seven strangers are giving up the comforts of the modern world in an attempt to build a self-sustaining colony in the Alaskan wilderness in the upcoming Discovery series, 100 DAYS WILD.

The series, scheduled to premiere Friday, August 21 at 9P ET, follows five men and two women as they hone their skills and work together to hunt, gather, and build shelter over the course of 100 days, before the start of the brutal Alaskan winter.

100 DAYS WILD takes place in Alaska’s remote Tanana Valley where group founders Jennifer and Andrew have searched for other like-minded individuals to join them in building a self-sustaining colony. They are soon joined by Adam, Oliver, Gerrid, Christine, and Evan to build the lives they haven’t been able to make in the lower 48.

Along the way, the survivalists will be tested by elements, not to mention one another. While there is no established leader and everyone is said to be equal, those egalitarian ideals are quickly tested by the harsh realities of surviving Alaska. If they can’t figure out the rules, they will fail.
