The Colony

Image 1 / 10

‘The Colony’ is a controlled experiment to see exactly what it would take to survive and recover from a global catastrophe. For 10 weeks, a group of 10 volunteers will be isolated in an urban environment outside of Los Angeles. They must work together to create a liveable society - but have no electricity, no running water and no communication with the outside world. As a result, they have to work together and use their skills in order to survive, along with whatever tools and supplies they can scavenge from their surroundings. Designed by experts in the fields of homeland security, engineering and psychology, the experiment reflects elements from both real-life disasters and models of what the future could look like after a global viral outbreak. Find out whether the volunteers will succeed - or fail - in this intense and unfamiliar situation.
