"Siberia" is a new 60-minute dramatic horror TV show by Sierra-Engine Television, Infinity Films, and Welldone Productions. Technically, it is a meta production in that it is about a reality TV show but is offered as a drama instead, about a reality TV show, or the idea of one. The creator and director of the show is Matthew Arnold, and executive producers include Chris Philip and Doug McCallie. Supernatural is a word that comes up around "Siberia" as the contestants encounter horror-movie like conditions at times. The show is not technically a soap opera but does have a few of the characteristics of a soap in that it is a serial production that features the same characters. "Siberia" is smart because it is aware that it is not real and yet seems to dovetail with reality, walking the line, in a way, between reality TV and drama. In that way, it is groundbreaking and innovative. The idea of the fictional reality TV situation is that 16 people must fight for their survival in Tunguska, a wilderness area of Siberia. Actually set in Canada, the scenery in "Siberia" almost makes it worth viewing in the first place. Winnipeg, Manitoba, is the actual backdrop of the show against which participants of "Siberia" find that the experience is not what they'd hoped for and is actually a challenge that might just take their lives. From all around the world, the participants will face off by competing to see who can survive the longest. The winners will receive $500,000, which is pretty standard for a reality TV show, but the action takes a surprising and suspenseful turn when a fatal accident eliminates three of the characters. Those remaining, 13 participants, are faced with a choice: continue on or go home. The drama then unfolds and is reminiscent of the Blair Witch Project in its style, which has a similar approach. The result is an interesting and dynamic show that follows the supernatural conditions of those who decide to stay. Included in the lineup of characters are the show's host Jonathon Buckley; Carolina, a Colombian bartender; a South Carolina bull rider Johnny; an Australian model, Esther, and other colorful professionals from a DJ to a rugby player.
