Global streaming giant Netflix is prepping a new eight-part live-action interactive series featuring survivalist Bear Grylls.

Produced by Electus, a Propagate company, and Bear Grylls Ventures, You vs. Wild gives viewers the chance to join Grylls on his extreme adventures around the world, from dense jungles to towering mountains.

Directed by Ben Simms, each episode features an interactive experience with multiple choices, allowing the user to direct the outcome of the story and whether or not Grylls succeeds or fails.

“I’m so proud to deliver this first-of-its-kind live-action interactive series, really giving viewers an all access pass to explore the world and its landscapes in my boots,” said Grylls in a statement. 

Series executive producers are Grylls, Chris Grant, Drew Buckley, Ben Silverman, Howard Owens, Rob Buchta, and Delbert Shoopman.

Grylls is also the star of Discovery Channel’s Man vs. Wild and Running Wild with Bear Grylls, which recently found a new home on National Geographic after four seasons on NBC.

 You vs. Wild premieres April 10 on Netflix.
