Fox's new 'When Women Rule The World' series to premiere March 3

Fox has announced When Women Rule the World, a new reality series that will follow a group of strong-minded women as the run rough-shot over a group of unsuspecting men in a primitive Survivor-like society, is scheduled to premiere on Monday, March 3 at 8PM ET/PT.
Fox reportedly began production on When Women Rule the World back in January, and while the series was initially scheduled to debut last spring, that never happened, and it was also left off both Fox's Summer 2007 schedule as well as its initial 2007-2008 primetime programming lineup.
Produced by Rocket Science Laboratories -- the reality TV production company behind previous Fox train-wreck series like Temptation Island, Married By America, Joe Millionaire, and My Big Fat Obnoxious Fiance -- When Women Rule the World will feature 12 unsuspecting chauvinistic men becoming slaves in a new primitive Survivor-like "society" ruled by 12 "strong, educated and independent" women who are "tired of living in a man's world."
When Women Rule the World will reportedly begin with the men and women arriving on an island that features only partially-completed living accommodations. Similar to Survivor, the group will have to complete their shelters and find their own water and heat. However unlike the long-running CBS reality show, only the male contestants -- who will have to "accede to the women's every command, 24/7" -- will be doing any of the work.
One of the men will be "traded for supplies" -- aka eliminated -- during each episode of the 11-episode series, with the last man standing winning $250,000.
It's still unknown if the women -- who remain in the competition even after their assigned "manservent" is eliminated -- receive any compensation other than the satisfaction they get from bossing the men around.
