“Flanigan’s arch is a prominent feature of the episode and it was fun to work with the film crew to make the show happen,” NBC communications specialist Kelly Stowell said.

James Marsden stares fear in the face on the cliffs of Utah, during the episode.

Marsden teams up with Grylls for an unforgettable two-day journey in a one-on-one adventure through the towering cliffs of Ashdown Gorge.

About the series

In this hour-long alternative series, Grylls takes eight entertainment and sports stars into the most remote and pristine locations in the U.S. and around the world for a 48-hour journey of a lifetime.

Marsden, along with intrepid cast members face their deepest fears and tackle everything from skydiving to rappelling as they journey through some of the world’s most unforgiving wildernesses.

Pushing their minds and bodies to the limit to complete their journeys, they will experience the excitement of being dropped into uncharted territory and tackling the wilderness head-on, which is daunting and draining, but also very empowering.

The show was devised by Grylls and Delbert Shoopman. Grylls recently starred on the NBC series “Get Out Alive with Bear Grylls” and serves as host and executive producer of “The Island.”

    Repelling?

    There could be a wild animal, like a rhino or something. Or a mean bird. I won’t watch the show. Guessing it’s staged. But the WWF or Confrence? I’m in!
