The CW is Planning a Hunger Games-Based Reality Show But, Sadly, No Children Will Actually Die

Finally the brave execs at The CW have made the bold move we all saw coming: ordering a new reality series clearly based on The Hunger Games called The Hunt.

On The Hunt, 12 teams of two will be dropped into the wilderness. They'll have no food, water or shelter. Theses Katnisses and Petas will have to hunt, gather and make out for medicine capture the other teams. The competition will last for a month and the prize is cash, which lowers the stakes significantly from getting shot in the face with an arrow.

We've officially entered a world where YA fiction and the preferences of tweens dictate everything. Coming to The CW in 2013: Katniss Everdeen's standup comedy special.
