Discovery to premiere second edition of 'The Colony' on July 27

The Colony's second season will isolate a new group of participants -- including a construction foreman, teacher, carpenter and auto mechanic -- for two months and require them to create a sustainable society.
While last summer's first season was set at an abandoned warehouse on a three-and-a-half acre plot near the Los Angeles River, the upcoming second installment will instead take place on 10 acres of abandoned neighborhood on the Gulf Coast of Louisiana.

The environment had been left decimated by Hurricane Katrina and was slated to be bulldozed and turned into a public park -- and the participants will be challenged in the context of real-world disasters as they work together to build the necessities of survival and society, such as a water filtration system, a battery bank for electricity, a solar cooker, a shower system and a greenhouse.

Discovery Channel renewed The Colony for a second season in April and it is produced by Original Productions.
