U.S. net TLC is going off the grid in the forthcoming series Risking it All, which follows three city-dwelling families (pictured) who decide to relocate, shelve their modern devices and live off the land.

The Twofour America-produced series will follow the families who – after selling their homes – must figure out how to locate food and shelter for themselves without the modern comforts they have grown accustomed to. In order to reconnect with one another, the groups adopt basic lifestyles devoid of modern technologies such as smartphones and tablets, or electricity and running water.

Risking it All taps into something every modern day family can relate to: the desire to connect,” says Nancy Daniels, GM of TLC, in a statement. “In today’s harried world we have all fantasized about getting back to basics. These families are simply taking it to the extreme.”

The series will debut on November 18 at 10 p.m. EST/PST.
