Fox's new reality show, "Utopia", gives contestants an opportunity to build their own perfect world, where they don't have to conform. But because no two people appear to have the same notion of what a perfect world would look like, each of them struggle to create a society "by throwing off the shackles of convention and conformity."
This is the idea behind "Utopia," and because it is not a game show, there is no prize money, executive producer Conrad Green said during the Television Critics Association summer press tour. "We don't know where this is going to end," Green said, according to TVLine. "We hope that when 15 people eventually go into the compound of Utopia, we'll develop something genuinely interesting. It's not a game show, it's not a competition [and] there's not a prize."
The contestants spend a year in a remote location, and viewers can vote out contestants using Passport app, and as each contestant is eliminated, the show will replace the contestants.
While it is too soon to say if Fox's new reality show will be a success, the interesting mix of contestants promises immense drama.
