Man vs. Wild host Bear Grylls has started filming the six-episode series Worst Case Scenario, which premieres this spring on Discovery. Based on the best-selling book series of the same name, the show follows Grylls as he “portrays potentially life-threatening situations to demonstrate how to survive in a worst case scenario.” Those scenarios include escaping a high-rise apartment fire, fending off a shark attack, escaping a sinking or burning car, and surviving a multi-story elevator plunge or falling down a flight of stairs.
