Humans have passed ideas and concepts in myths, stories, legends, and folklore through time. One of the most common ones would have to be that of the 'underworld'. While we all are familiar with the concept of hell, the idea of the same also delves into a deeper notion: there is a physical space below the one we call the Earth's surface. A terrain untainted by humans, where the law of the land is the survival of the fittest. 

Regardless if you believe in Hollow Earth theory or not, brace yourself for NBC's newest series, 'La Brea', which explores this concept in depth. If you're looking for shows that explore themes of new land, history, and survival, you should consider checking out -- 'Foundation', 'Survivor', 'The Lost Symbol' and 'Brave New World'.
