If you thought wild man Bear Grylls has faced his worst case scenario out in the wild, you’d be wrong.

The unflappable survivalist from ‘Man vs. Wild‘ will soon face a new challenge in a spin-off series.

The Discovery Channel has ordered a six-episode survival series called ‘Worst Case Scenario.’ It’s based on the best-selling book, ‘The Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook,’ which teaches users how to survive both uncommon and everyday disasters, from “How to Wrestle Free from an Alligator” to “How to Deliver a Baby in a Taxi Cab.”

“‘Worst Case Scenario’ is a much different take on survival than ‘Man vs. Wild,’” says Discovery Channel president and general manager Clark Bunting in a press release. “It features Bear in all his physicality using an urban backdrop to set up everyday scenarios viewers could encounter at any time.”
