Mark Burnett is reviving Eco-Challenge with Bear Grylls
Before Survivor, Burnett helmed Discovery Channel's Eco-Challenge, an environmentally-conscious reality competition. The new version has yet to find a network home. "The most asked question in my entire career is 'Will you ever bring back Eco-Challenge?' and I’d always known we needed the correct authentic figure head to lead us forward effectively," said Burnett. "Bear Grylls is that leader. He’s tough, he’s smart and he’s extremely capable in both the wilderness and in the boardroom. He’s my friend and I couldn’t be happier and I’d gladly follow him."
