You Decide What Happens To Bear Grylls In New Bandersnatch-Style Interactive Netflix Show
"You vs. Wild" premieres in April.
As part of Netflix's push to make more choose-your-own adventure style TV shows, the company has partnered with outdoorsman Bear Grylls for a new program.
The show is called "You vs. Wild," and it premieres on April 10. "Viewers join survival expert Bear Grylls on exciting adventures all over the world. Dense jungles, towering mountains, brutal deserts, and mysterious forests await, with tough decisions around every corner," reads a line from the press release announcing the show.
Viewers make "all the decisions," but we hope that whatever you choose, Grylls survives. There are eight episodes in You vs. Wild, all of which premiere on April 10.

Grylls served three years in the British Special Forces before going on to find mainstream success with his Discovery Channel show "Man vs. Wild," which inspired the 2011 video game of the same name.
The new Bear Grylls show appears to be part of Netflix's wider ambition to make more interactive shows after the success of the Black Mirror Bandersnatch episode.
Netflix VP Todd Yellin recently discussed Netflix's ambitions to make more choose-your-own adventure shows.
"We're doubling down on that," Yellin said during an event in Mumbai recently as reported by Variety. "So expect over the next year or two to see more interactive storytelling. And it won't necessarily be science fiction, or it won't necessarily be dark. It could be a wacky comedy. It could be a romance, where the audience gets to choose--should she go out with him or him."
