Real Life Hunger Games Coming To The CW

The CW network announced plans for a new reality show that is undoubtedly inspired by the hit book-turned-movie, The Hunger Games.

The name of the show is The Hunt and it will match 12 teams of two people to battle it out in “The Arena,” which is a fenced-in enclosure in the middle of the wild. They will be left without food, water and shelter.

A casting announcement reads, “Contestants will live outdoors, in the wild, scavenging for food, shelter and protection from natural enemies that lie up every tree, in every stream, behind every boulder…and at the same time competing with other teams for the same resources and necessary tools needed to persevere.”

One rule for teams to enter “The Arena” is teammates must already have an existing and compelling relationship.

The Hunt is set to premiere this summer on Wednesday, July 31 at 9pm right here on CW44.
