survive that/ dude you're screwed
On this prime-time show for Discovery, a group of five of “the world’s most elite, thrill-seeking survivalists” capture one among them in turn, then blindfold and dispatch him to a remote, unexpected location to fend for himself. Each 'dude' has 100 hours to find his way back to civilization or he loses the game: big-time.
“It’s a hero’s journey,” explain Marjorie Kaplan, the network’s president and general manager, “but we also want to show the camaraderie of his friends, who are monitoring him on video. We want to show the fun of the game.”
John Hudson was proud to be part of the adventure for two series, working on the project from concept to creation. The show is still being aired on Discovery, D-Max and Animal Planet globally; including in Asia, South America, Europe and Australasia.
