According to the broadcaster, "BBC One and BBC iPlayer have commissioned a new U.K. adaptation of the entertainment
from Banijay U.K. firm Remarkable Entertainment, helmed by prominent entertainment producers Natalka Znak and Claire O'Donohoe.
According to the BBC, the 16-episode season "promises spectators a fascinating test of intellect, brawn
betrayal as competitors try to outsmart, outplay, and outlast their opponents to be named the Ultimate Survivor."
"20 carefully chosen individuals from throughout the United Kingdom will be marooned in a tropical environment.
They will be split into two tribes and compete against one another in a variety of mental and physical tests.
This year marks the 25th anniversary of the Charlie Parsons-created television programme Survivor, which made its debut in Sweden in 1997.
