What can't you live without? Your cell phone? Your bed? In this entertaining social experiment, participants embark on a self-reflecting and often humorous journey as they are stripped of all material possessions for 21 days.
This outlandish-yet-emotional social experiment aims to discover how people's lives and values change once everything they own is stripped away. This series exposes people's relationships with their personal belongings as they forego everything they own — clothing, furniture, money and all coveted possessions — for 21 days. Each day, they may retrieve one item that they cannot live without, and priorities will inevitably emerge. Expected to go about their daily lives by showing up to work, maintaining their families and keeping up with social circles — without their everyday necessities — each person jumps into survival mode in order to determine what is most essential to them. With no shortage of outrageous and uncomfortable moments along the way, this transformative journey has a life-changing impact as they each uncover what truly matters to them most.
Rules and regulations include: (1) Participants are stripped of everything they own; (2) Their belongings are placed in a mobile storage container a half-mile away from their home; (3) Only toilet paper, water, and food rations are provided; and (4) Each day, participants can retrieve 1 item from the container. Every choice counts.
"Stripped" is produced by Truly Original with Steven Weinstock, Glenda Hersh, Todd Hurvitz, Cat Rodriguez and Michelle Schiefen serving as executive producers.
