Show Summary: Five acres of paradise. Fifteen pioneers. 126 remote cameras. The largest social experiment ever televised. This is not a game. There is no prize. This is UTOPIA. On the daring new unscripted series UTOPIA, 15 pioneering Americans wave goodbye to the lives they’ve known, move to a remote location and set out to create a society from scratch. They’ve got limited supplies, wildly diverse backgrounds and zero bathrooms. From executive producer John de Mol, and based on the hit Dutch television series of the same name, UTOPIA asks the question: “If you could restart the world, what would you do differently?”

Each pioneer brings a unique skill set and strongly held ideal to UTOPIA. A liberal lawyer, a Pentecostal preacher, a Casanova contractor, a Southern chef, an ex-con seeking redemption and a soon-to-be-mom are among those seeking to build this new society. With no existing power structures and limited amenities, these Utopians will be challenged with rewriting the rules. They will be asked to question and rethink many of the fundamental values of our current culture: morality, law, sex and religion. Will they choose democracy or dictatorship? Will they punish or forgive? Will they choose to be monogamous or polyamorous? Will religion guide their decisions? Ultimately, will the Utopians find a better way? Or will their civilization, like so many others, lead to conflict, strife and chaos?

As the Utopians build their new society, every decision counts. Each must try to become indispensable to the group, or risk being exiled to their former lives; their places taken by newcomers who have been vying to join.
