    Utopia - News and Information

    The Utopians moved in last weekend and the live feeds started right away. The TV show premieres on Sunday, September 7. Below is information from the official website UtopiaTV.com


    Behold UTOPIA, a bold new series based on the hit Dutch program. Watch what happens as 14 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.

    What could go wrong -- besides everything?

    The Utopians will make every decision about how they live and work. Will they choose democracy or dictatorship? Capitalism or socialism? Fidelity or free love? Which religion, if any, will prevail? Will they punish or forgive? Keep or share?

    Are those chickens friends….or food? If not now, when?

    It is all up to them.

    This is not a game. There is no prize. This is UTOPIA: reality TV in its truest form.

    Of course, not all initial prototypes yield ideal results — and that’s where YOU come in! Any colonist who proves to be dispensable within Utopia will risk banishment and can be replaced by a newcomer vying to join. Register for your Passport so you can vote in the replacement process!

    By the way, that Newtopian could be you! Casting is ongoing.

    Let UTOPIA begin....

    --

    UTOPIA, a presentation of Talpa Media, U.S.A., is the brainchild of reality mastermind John de Mol and executive-produced by De Mol, Conrad Green ('Dancing With The Stars'), Jon Kroll ('The Amazing Race'), and David Tibballs ('Dragons' Den').

    IMPORTANT NOTE ---- SPOILER WARNING

    Since there are live feeds, there could be spoilers discussed. However, there are no competitions or things like that to be spoiled for the TV show. There could be discussions of fights, people leaving, etc, so if you do not want to know any of that ahead of time, use caution! We will be creating separate threads for discussion of the TV show only so if you don't want to know about anything ahead of time, only use those threads.

    This is a new show, new concept, etc, so we'll more or less be "winging it" in this forum. If anyone has any ideas/suggestions for this forum, please feel free to PM me

    Re: Utopia - News and Information

    From what we've gathered watching the live feeds, there will be a banishment and a new Utopian to arrive each month.

    Two new candidates will arrive, spend 2-3 days, and then there will be a vote to keep one. America will somehow be involved in this process.

    The group will also vote to banish 1.

    One pioneer left from sequester after being caught with a cellphone and trying to contact the other pioneers. So they started down by 1. So two more potential candidates arrived yesterday, a month earlier than planned, to replace that one. Later that night, someone else left Utopia so now it's unclear if both of these 2 new ones will stay, or if a 3rd new one will arrive so that there will still be a vote.

    How to watch the live feeds:

    You can watch online at Utopia - Live in Utopia

    There is also a "Utopia" app for iOS, Android, and Windows. Read more about the app here

    There are 4 feeds on at a time. For those familiar with Big Brother, it's very similar. You usually get two scenes, with two camera angles of each scene.

    You can watch 2 designated cameras for free, or you can sign up for premium ($4.99 per month) to see all 4 cameras. During this first week, it seems that the nudity is blurred out on the free but not on the Premium, although sometimes it's blurred on premium. Sometimes it also seems they try to mute some foul language. I think they're still just trying to figure it out. Also, sometimes there are audio bleeds onto the wrong cameras but, again, I think they'll get it fixed. One of the producers is very active on twitter and interacts with the fans so it seems they really want to make everyone happy.

    Note that even for the free feeds, you will still need to create a free Passport account. You will also need the Passport account for voting.

    Sign up for Passport here

    Here is a tweet and Google map showing what might be the location of Utopia:

    Re: Utopia - News and Information

    So, I'm a little confused...is this show supposed to be on for an entire year? That's a big commitment for the participants & the viewers, if that's the case.

    Yes. But not all of them will stay for a full year. There's an elimination and a new person added each month.

    I just read that the ratings are so low that this show will likely be cancelled before Amanda gives birth.
