MTV ANNOUNCES PROVOCATIVE NEW SURVIVAL SERIES "STRANDED WITH A MILLION DOLLARS"

New Reality Series Debuts Tuesday, February 21 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT on MTV

NEW YORK, NY - January 18, 2017 - MTV today announced, "Stranded with a Million Dollars," a thought-provoking new survivalist series, which will force a group of young adventurers to literally answer the question, "How much would you pay to survive?" The 10-episode season of "Stranded with a Million Dollars" premieres Tuesday, February 21 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT on MTV.

The series drops 10 adventurers on an island with nothing but the clothes on their backs and $1 million in cash. Those who survive for 40 days filled with gut-wrenching journeys and demanding physical challenges will split the money as their prize. The catch? They can buy all of the survival supplies and creature comforts they desire, but everything is crazy expensive (think $30K for a tent), all decisions to make a purchase require a group majority and the cost comes out of their shared prize money.

The participants are free to leave the island at any point by shooting a flare gun indicating they're ready to throw in the towel and leave their pride and accumulated cash behind. Friends and foes are forced to work together in an intense group dynamic that tests psychological limits, pushes personalities to the brink and leaves everyone wondering who, if anyone, will make it to the end in this genre-busting series that would leave Katniss Everdeen breathless and the Lord of the Flies boys running for the hills.

Adding a modern spin to the survival show construct, "Stranded with a Million Dollars" relies on retrofitted drone cameras and robo-cam technology for principle photography. The unique fly-on-the wall result provides a rarely seen perspective for viewers, while truly adding a layer of isolation for the survivors as they fight brutal conditions... and each other.

"Stranded with a Million Dollars" is produced by Tollbooth TV - Concept By and Executive Produced by Kevin Lee. John Davis served as Executive-in-Charge.
