GO DEEP INSIDE MILITARY SPECIAL OPERATIONS TRAINING WITH DISCOVERY CHANNEL'S RETURNING HIT SERIES "SURVIVING THE CUT 2"

(Silver Spring, MD) - With extraordinary and unprecedented access, Discovery Channel will bring viewers inside the intense world of military special operations training when SURVIVING THE CUT 2 premieres on Monday, July 11 at 10 PM ET/PT.

On the 2nd season of returning hit series SURVIVING THE CUT 2, cameras go where no camera has gone before. The result is a thrilling peek into the extreme training each Special Ops hopeful must go through to "survive the cut". Never before filmed courses include:

· US Air Force Special Operations Dive School, where students must master the art of staying calm in violent water conditions. 35% of these students will not make it.

· The Naval Special Warfare Combatant Craft Basic and Advanced Courses, where students must prove they have what it takes to become Special Boat Operators by performing Special Weapons tests, rigorous team building events, and small boat operations. An astounding 75% of these students will fail.

· Special operations Air Regiment, where soldiers must prove they can endure extreme conditions, escape, evade, and rescue downed aircrews under hostile conditions. 50% of these students will not make it through the course.

Other courses featured on SURVIVING THE CUT 2 include US Army Sniper School, where 40% will fail. The US Army Sapper School is also featured this season. This course is where the best combat engineers learn to blast through whatever stands between our forces and the enemy. 50% of these students will fail.

Viewers will meet students who must prove that they are capable of not only functioning in the worst possible scenarios... but also making it out of these scenarios alive. There will be no shortage of pain and suffering as these students endure the worst of the worst to become the best of best.

This is the tryout of a lifetime. This is SURVIVING THE CUT 2.

SURVIVING THE CUT 2 is produced for Discovery Channel by 2 Roosters. Al Edgington and Bobby Williams are executive producers for 2 Roosters, and Tracy Rudolph is executive producer for Discovery Channel.
