HOT FROM FOX...

WITNESS THE BIRTH OF A BRAVE NEW WORLD AND MEET THE 15 PIONEERS BUILDING "UTOPIA"

Lawyer, Preacher, Mom-to-Be, Life Coach, Raw Vegan Chef, Contractor and Ex-Con Among Those Set to Create a New Society

24/7 Access to UTOPIA Available at UtopiaTV.com

Three-Night Series Premiere Begins Sunday, September 7 on FOX; Continues Tuesday, September 9 and Friday, September 12!

Get ready to witness the birth of a brave new world. On the daring unscripted series UTOPIA, 15 pioneering Americans wave goodbye - for an entire year - to the lives they've known, move to a remote location and set out to create a society from scratch. They've got limited supplies, wildly diverse backgrounds and zero bathrooms.

UTOPIA kicks off with a special three-night premiere, beginning on a special night, Sunday, Sept. 7 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), following the FOX NFL doubleheader. The series continues in its regular time period, Tuesday, Sept. 9 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT), with six special broadcasts on Fridays (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT), beginning Sept. 12 on FOX.

From executive producer John de Mol, and based on the hit Dutch television series of the same name, UTOPIA asks the question: "If you could restart the world, what would you do differently?" These 15 Utopians - seven women, eight men - have accepted the challenge and each of them brings a unique skill set and ideal to UTOPIA. A lawyer, a preacher, a contractor, a chef, an ex-con and a soon-to-be-mom are among those seeking to build this new society. What conflicts will emerge, what leaders will arise and what ideals will shape this new world?

Fans will have the opportunity to witness life in UTOPIA with 24/7 access to live streaming video, episodes and exclusive content on UtopiaTV.com and the Utopia App. The UTOPIA App will be available for iOS, Android and Windows on Friday, Aug. 29. Check out UtopiaTV.com for more details and additional updates.
