Series background and info
Survivor is an American competitive reality television series executive produced by Jeff Probst, Mark Burnett and Charlie Parsons. Since its debut in 2000 it has ranked as one of the most watched shows in the US and is currently considered the highest-rated and most profitable reality series on television. Season 33 of the show premiered on CBS on September 21, 2016. The show is currently co-produced by Survivor Productions LLC, Castaway Television Productions and MGM Television and is simulcast in Canada on Global, airing in Australia on Go! on the day following the US broadcast.
The reality program features a group of strangers isolated in a deserted location, where they must struggle to provide themselves with food, water, fire, shelter and any medical assistance necessary. At the same time, they compete in challenges to either earn immunity from expulsion from the game, or a reward. The last couple of survivors left standing must face the jury consisting of the previously eliminated contestants. The Sole Survivor wins a prize of a million dollars.
