Siberia


Siberia Information

Siberia is a mockumentary series about a fictional reality television show where 16 contestants must survive in the remote Siberian territory of Tunguska. The show was filmed in Birds Hill Provincial Park just north of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. It premiered on NBC on July 1, 2013, and was met with mostly negative reviews from critics and viewers; Metacritic scored the show with a 63 out of 100.

Premise

Sixteen reality-show contestants arrive in a Siberian forest to take part in a new reality show and quickly discover the adventure and life-threatening danger is not what they signed up for. Weird events begin to happen that parallel the ones natives experienced 100 years earlier during the Tunguska event.

The show is described as having a "Lost-meets-Survivor premise," and is compared to The Blair Witch Project and The River.
