DETROIT -

Would be adventure racers can attend a casting call in Michigan for, "Get Out Alive", an extreme adventure reality-competition series headlined by world-renowned adventurer Bear Grylls.

Auditions will be held at Gardner White in Auburn Hills on Dec. 8th from 10 a.m. till 4 p.m.

NBC says the show will test teams of two beyond their most extreme imaginations in the wild. 

"'Get Out Alive’ will be raw, tough and unrelenting, but it will also inspire and teach the essentials that one day may just save your life," said Grylls. "The goal is to empower people with the ultimate in both survival and teamwork, and that brings incredible reward... but first there must be some pain."

Grylls’ trained from a young age in martial arts and went on to spend three years as a soldier in the British Special Forces, serving with 21 SAS. 

Despite a free-fall parachuting accident in Africa where he broke his back in three places, Grylls went on to become one of the youngest climbers ever to reach the summit of Mount Everest.

Today, Grylls is perhaps best known for his international TV series “Man vs. Wild” and author of his #1 best-selling book "Mud, Sweat and Tears."

"To meet Bear is to meet a force of nature," said Paul Telegdy, President, Alternative and Late Night Programming, NBC Entertainment.  "He is a magnetic and charismatic talent, whose infectious enthusiasm for adventure inspires people to push themselves beyond their limits.  These contestants are in for the ride of their lives!"
