UTOPIA: Series Premiere, Part OneUTOPIA:

Series Premiere, Part One

Sunday at 8/7c on FOX

Part 1 of the three-part premiere of a one-year social experiment involving 15 people who try to create their own civilization from scratch by deciding on a system of government, what food they'll eat and how they'll interact with the outside world.

(Tuesday, 8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT; beginning Sept. 9; Fridays, 8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT; Sept. 12 – Oct. 17)

Get ready to witness the birth of a brand-new world. Five acres of paradise. Fifteen pioneers. 126 remote cameras. The largest social experiment ever televised. This is not a game. There is no prize. This is UTOPIA.

UTOPIA: Series Premiere, Part One

On the daring new unscripted series UTOPIA, 15 pioneering Americans wave goodbye to the lives they’ve known, move to a remote location and set out to create a society from scratch. They’ve got limited supplies, wildly diverse backgrounds and zero bathrooms.

{sidebar id=8}From executive producer John de Mol, and based on the hit Dutch television series of the same name, UTOPIA asks the question: “If you could restart the world, what would you do differently?”

Each pioneer brings a unique skill set and strongly held ideal to UTOPIA. A liberal lawyer, a Pentecostal preacher, a Casanova contractor, a Southern chef, an ex-con seeking redemption and a soon-to-be-mom are among those seeking to build this new society.

With no existing power structures and limited amenities, these Utopians will be challenged with rewriting the rules. They will be asked to question and rethink many of the fundamental values of our current culture: morality, law, sex and religion. Will they choose democracy or dictatorship?  Will they punish or forgive?  Will they choose to be monogamous or polyamorous? Will religion guide their decisions?  

Ultimately, will the Utopians find a better way? Or will their civilization, like so many others, lead to conflict, strife and chaos?

As the Utopians build their new society, every decision counts. Each must try to become indispensable to the group, or risk being exiled to their former lives; their places taken by newcomers who have been vying to join.

With cameras following the pioneers’ every move, viewers can also watch their society unfold, both weekly on FOX and live on the internet with 24/7 access to live streaming video, episodes and exclusive content on UtopiaTV.com and the Utopia App. They also get a chance to participate, playing a crucial part both in nominating potential newcomers, and in voting for whom they feel should leave.

A Dutch version of “Utopia” has been broadcast on SBS6 and streamed live on the internet since January 2014. It has become a cultural sensation, ranking as the network’s highest-rated show for every episode and increasing the channel’s key demo (20-49) market share by an astonishing 500%.
