The CW has ordered a Hunger Games style reality show. {<a href="http://insidetv.ew.com/2012/12/12/cw-hunger-games/">EW</a>}</h3> <p><span>In </span><em>The Hunt</em><span>, 12 </span><del>tributes</del><span> teams of two are dropped into the wilderness without food, water or shelter. They must compete in a game where they’ll rely on their physicality, survival skills and hunting skills to endure the harsh conditions and </span><del>kill</del><span> “capture” one another.</span></p> <p> </p> <p>The competition lasts a full month and the winner will receive a cash prize. No premiere date is set.</p> <p>It’s been awhile since any reality show really made a successful run at a <em>Survivor</em>-style competition, so it will be interesting to see how this one turns out. The order follows The CW developing a drama series, <em>The Selection</em>, that’s been compared to <em>The Hunger Games</em> (the project is still alive, I’m told), and <a href="http://insidetv.ew.com/2012/07/30/the-cw-battle-royale/" target="_blank">toying with the (ill-advised) idea</a> of adapting ultra-violent Japanese cult favorite <em>Battle Royale, </em>which has a very similar storyline to<em> The Hunger Games.</em></p> <p>Perhaps <em>The Hunt</em> will be a way for the network to capitalize (Capitolize?) on the hit franchise, like <em>The Vampire Diaries</em> post-<em>Twilight</em> and <em>Arrow</em> post-<em>Dark Knight</em>.</p> <p> </p> <h3> Hrmmmm, I don't know about this.
