This fall, Fox's new experimental reality Utopia will drop 15 strangers in a remote location for a year, with limited supplies and no backgrounds, and task them with creating a society from scratch.
Based on the hit Dutch show, the American adaptation comes from creator John de Mol, who will executive-produce along with David Tibballs, Conrad Green (who left Dancing with the Stars to join the show) and Jon Kroll(The Amazing Race).
The Season 1 cast includes a lawyer, a preacher, a pregnant lady (who's keeping it a secret) and an ex-con. What could possibly go awry with this crew?!
