The CW hungry for 'Hunger Games'?
Network orders survival-based reality show
The CW has ordered a new reality show it describes as an "intense wilderness competition." While early reports trumpet it as "Hunger Games" without the murder, it seems more like an update of "Survivor."
On the hour-long show, 12 teams of two will be dropped into the wilderness without food, water or shelter. For a full month, they'll compete in tests of their ability to hunt, survive and capture one another.
Only one winner will emerge to collect a cash prize.
No premiere date has been set.
Will you care?
some classmates and I was just talking about this. It's funny how they say "without murder" b/c pretty soon that's what will happening on these reality shows. This is really weird
Really?! The Hunger Games is a satire based on the decline of our civilization due to reality shows. And they want to use this as the basis for a reality show. Is this not a perfect example of irony?
