Innovative format and production info
Eden is a UK reality series that premiered on July 18, 2016 on Channel 4. The series is produced by KEO Films and executive produced by Andrew Palmer and Coleen Flynn. Hailed as a revolution in the reality genre, the show obtains its footage from fixed cameras, Go-Pro worn by the participants, and a camera crew of four.
23 participants (13 men and 10 women) are sent into the 600-acre wilderness in Scotland equipped with only such objects that they can carry with them. They have committed a year of their lives to the filming of Eden in the harsh Western Highlands of Scotland. The series is completely unmediated by the producers, and although it is possible to leave the place, it can be done only under extremely pressing circumstances. There is no manufactured drama or evictions, perhaps because there is enough drama in the premise of the show to begin with. The crew has to manage building a shelter, finding food and governing their small society for a year. The participants are selected by their professional skills – medical, survival, construction, scientific, et cetera, so that the community is diverse and the skills are varied.
Solid viewership and renewal prospects
Not typical of the reality genre, Eden has been well-received for its ingenious quality. Such a format has been discussed for long time, but it became the pioneer in what may very well become the next trend in reality series. The series premiere drew 1.98 million viewers and became Channel 4’s #2 most-watched program of the week. The two subsequent episodes attracted considerable audiences of 1.65 and 1.52 million viewers. Eden seems to have great renewal potential, so stay tuned, and we’ll keep you informed regarding its fate.
