Looking to Live off the Grid? Check out GBTV’s new Reality Show: Independence U.S.A.

Who ever thought that Glenn Beck’s live streaming video network would have a Reality show on it? Well, it’s true, debuting tonight, “Independence U.S.A” with the Belcastro Family who are preparing for an independent life off the grid.

This show is a co-production between GBTV and the WorkShop, LLC who has also produced shows for other networks such as the History Channel, ESPN, HGTV, Travel Channel, Discovery Channel, TLC and others.

In the tonight’s premiere “A Hunting We Will Go”- we meet the Belcastro’s as they set out on a journey to be a self-sufficient family. The first lesson: Frank wants the family to be able to hunt and kill their own food but not everyone is on board. Frank and his son Adam learn appreciation for the hunt and start by trying to make their own weapons. Do you think they will succeed?
