TV show description:      
The storyline of this scripted series begins in 1908, when an unexplained event occurs deep in the remote Siberian territory of Tunguska. More than 100 years later, 16 reality-show participants descend on Tunguska — unknowing of the land’s mysterious past.

These contestants are from varied walks of life and attempt to battle the elements (and each other) in a quest to survive the harsh winter and claim a large cash prize. What is initially met with unbridled enthusiasm quickly turns to sheer panic as a series of strange events begin to occur.

The contestants soon attribute the occurrences to ruses set up by the producers, even dismissing the death of a fellow player as an accident.

When a contestant is badly injured and no help arrives, the other players meet the chilling realization that the strange occurrences are not part of the show. With their safety threatened, the competitors must band together in an effort to survive.

The show is hosted by Jonathan Buckley (Jonathan Buckley) and the participants are Carolina (Joyce Giraud), a bartender from Colombia; Johnny (Johnny Wactor), a bull rider from Jedburg, South Carolina; Daniel (Daniel Sutton), a computer programmer from Minneapolis; Neeko, a professional rugby player from London; Natalie (Natalie Scheetz), veterinary assistant from Santa Barbara; Sam (Sam Dobbins), an auto mechanic from Brooklyn; and Esther (Esther Anderson), a model from Melbourne.

The remaining contestants are Tommy (Tommy Mountain), a philanthropist from Boston; George (George Dickson), an accountant from Louisville; Anne-Marie (Anne-Marie Mueschke), a graphic artist from New Orleans; Miljan (Miljan Milosevic), a DJ from Podgorica, Montenegro; Irene (Irene Szuchun Yee), a fashion designer from Taiwan; Berglind (Berglind Icey), a photo journalist from Iceland; Harpreet (Harpreet Turka), a graduate student from Washington, DC; Victoria (Victoria Hill), a sales clerk from Winnipeg; and Sabina (Sabina Akhmedova), a soldier from Israel.

Series Finale:     
Episode #11 — Into the Oven
Reunited and seemingly safe, the contestants begin to put the pieces together — and encounter yet another mind-blowing surprise.
First aired: September 16, 2013.

    Please do not cancel this show. My husband and I need to know what happens. I loved this show. Even with most of our shows on DVR, I always had to watch this show on Monday. I never wanted to wait. I think if more people had known about this show, they would have watched and enjoyed it. Most people I spoke to hadn’t heard of it, but were intrigued by it when I explained it to them. Please, please renew!!

    My husband and I love this show… It is one of the few shows that we can hardly wait for each week. Please don’t cancel.

    My whole family love the show…the ending was hard to deal with, we just want to see more. When does the next new episode start?? We want more.

    This show reminds me of the film Inception. I think it is one of the best things I have ever seen on TV. The references they just show casually are so much fun: a Tesla tower, the Tunguska crater (which indicated they had time travelled), water bears — perhaps as the source of life on Earth. Then there fact they they have taken all of the elements of Lost, stired them in the bowl, and used them as plot elements in the show… And what are the implications of that? Remember that Daniel is a very good programmer. This whole level of the show is a virtual reality ala The Matrix. Bravo writers! Please don’t cancel this show – it is the most innovative show I have ever run across. Add to that that it keeps me on the edge of my seat and I can’t wait for the next episode each week.
