Question is, do they get guns? 3 comments Email this Posted on Thursday, July 9th, 2009 19:52:34 GMT by: [SIZE=-2]agentorange[/SIZE] Posted under: trailer tv news I'm actually surprised it took this long for a reality show like this to hit the airwaves. At any rate, I'll take Discovery's The Colony over Survivor any day. Of course the big question is, will they be given a means to defend themselves from mutant marauders? Synopsis: The Colony is a controlled experiment to see exactly what it would take to survive and rebuild under these circumstances. For 10 weeks, a group of 10 volunteers, whose backgrounds and expertise represent a cross-section of modern society, are isolated in an urban environment outside Los Angeles and tasked with creating a livable society. With no electricity from the grid, no running water and no communication with the outside world, all the volunteers have to work with are their skills and whatever tools and supplies they can scavenge from their surroundings. The Colony premieres on Discovery on July July 21, 2009. For more info check out the official website. Thanks to mremeto for the heads up! Behind the scenes of the show after the break.
