NEW YORK (AP) - Bear Grylls will soon have some company on his in-the-wild adventures.

NBC said Monday that it is making a competition series with Grylls. He is the former star of Discovery’s “Man vs. Wild” series that tested his survival skills in foreboding settings

The NBC series, “Get Out Alive,” is planned for airing next summer. In it, Grylls will guide two teams in adventures. He says competitors will learn survival skills and teamwork but will have to suffer some pain before being rewarded in the end.

Grylls is co-producing the series with Electus, the studio run by former NBC entertainment chief Ben Silverman.
