Fight To Survive is one of three new series ordered by Roku in January slated to launch this year.

“By bringing together the best of The CW and the best of The Roku Channel, Fight To Survive will be able to reach the largest audience possible across both broadcast and streaming,” said Brad Schwartz, President of Entertainment, The CW Network, and Brian Tannenbaum, Head of Originals, Roku. “By working together in all aspects of distribution, marketing, press and advertising, we will expose this edge-of-your-seat series to millions of fans in brand new ways.”

In Fight To Survive, Gbajabiamila hosts a social experiment in primitive survivalism—with a competitive twist. 17 competitors—including former Survivor, Alone, Naked and Afraid and American Ninja Warrior contestants—must survive 25 days on a remote tropical island combatting brutal conditions—and each other—to win $250,000. “In one of the most intense survival of the fittest competitions ever televised, the competitors battle one another for essential tools and resources in the fight to survive,” according to the release.

“With its dynamic cast of reality personalities and an original unscripted format that ratchets up the intensity of the traditional competition series, Fight To Survive is an addicting summer series that we are thrilled to bring to The CW,” said Heather Olander, Head of Unscripted Content, The CW Network, and Sean Boyle, Head of Adventure and Exploration Programming, Roku. “We cannot wait for viewers to join the fight!”

Fight To Survive is a CW and Roku Original series executive produced and created by Kevin Lee for Tollbooth Television.
