NBC’s ‘Siberia’ Trailer: Reality Gets ‘LOST’

A few weeks ago, we heard about a last-minute order for NBC’s reality-skewing ‘Siberia,’ a mysterious new project set for a summer debut in which a reality competition goes horribly awry at the site of the infamous Tunguska Blast of 1908. Just as quickly, NBC has already released the first trailer for the new mystery effort, and it has more than a bit of ‘LOST‘ in its DNA.

Of interest to note is that, while still a scripted series, cameras utilize the reality-show look that buries the line between ‘Survivor‘ and ‘LOST.’ Whether or not the idea catches on beyond the initial gimmick remains to be seen, but we’ve officially made the jump from curiosity to attention. From the network’s official description of ‘Siberia’:

In 1908, a meteor hit deep into the remote Siberian territory of Tunguska. Now, more than 100 years later, 16 contestants descend on Tunguska unknowing of the land’s mysterious past. When a contestant is badly injured and no help arrives, the contestants are met with the chilling realization that the strange occurrences are not part of the show. With their safety threatened, competing contestants must band together in an effort to survive.

Mysterious symbols? Check. Leadership issues? Check. Mysterious animal observed in the wilderness far from its natural habitat? You betcha! The full trailer for the July 1 release is above, so tell us if you’ll tune in for ‘Siberia’ in the comments!
