[via press release from Discovery]

AT LONG LAST, FILMMAKER AND OUTDOOR ADVENTURER LES STROUD RETURNS TO DISCOVERY FOR ALL-NEW EPISODES OF FAN FAVORITE "SURVIVORMAN"

- Stroud Ups the Ante, Setting out for 10 Days of Lone Survival and Endures his Toughest Survival Experience Yet -

After almost four years, SURVIVORMAN returns to Discovery Channel on Sunday, August 19th at 8PM E/P for gripping all-new episodes. Filmmaker and outdoor adventurer Les Stroud once again ventures into the wild with no food, no water and no crew. He must rely on his years of training, raw instincts and sheer will to survive. And if that weren't enough, he refuses to bring along a film crew, preferring instead to keep it an authentic survival situation and film the journey himself, dragging 65 pounds of camera gear every inch of the way. And this time, Stroud is upping the ante and spending 10 days surviving alone in some of the world's harshest environments. Each location plays out in two one-hour episodes.

"MEXICO"

Part 1 Premieres Sunday, August 19th at 8PM E/P

Part 2 Premieres Sunday, August 26th at 8PM E/P

Les Stroud is shipwrecked on the uninhabited desert island of Tiburon in Mexico. Part of the Sonoran desert, Tiburon is searing hot in the day and freezing cold at night. The barren stretch of coastline has water as far as the eye can see, though in a cruel twist, no source of fresh, drinkable water. Knowing survival is literally impossible without it, Stroud must create fresh water from seawater using a distiller cobbled together from a rusty bucket, a water bottle and a pipe. And while food is plentiful in the estuary, catching it is another story. Stroud must avoid potentially lethal stingrays in the shallow waters and coyotes hunting the shoreline - all while carrying his camera gear and filming every aspect of the adventure. He battles hunger, fatigue and loneliness in this 10-day survival ordeal.

"NORWAY"

Part 1 Premieres Sunday, September 2nd at 8PM E/P

Part 2 Premieres Sunday, September 9th at 8PM E/P

Stroud tackles the scenario of a road trip gone awry in the Norwegian mountains - known for both extreme temperature and topography. With limited food and water and no safety or camera crew, Les hauls 65 pounds of camera equipment down the slick, wet mountainside in hopes of finding shelter. Even with the proper gear, survival in the Norwegian mountains is nearly impossible - and Stroud's supplies are far from ideal. Scavenging what he can from the barren landscape, exhausted and trying to ration what little food he has, he draws on his years of experience and will to survive to endure the full 10 days. Drenched, completely lost and stuck above sheer cliffs as nightfall was fast approaching - and with no working safety radio - this adventure is going from bad to worse. Stroud calls this the most difficult expedition of his 20-year survival career.

Over the course of his SURVIVORMAN career, Les Stroud has visited 23 locations where he spent more then 170 days alone and starving while foraging for food, building makeshift shelters and filming his survival odysseys. Throughout, Stroud put himself in precarious situations while relying on his years of training, raw instincts and sheer will to survive with little more than a multi-tool. He's been chased by jaguar in an Amazonian jungle, come dangerously close to heat stroke in the Kalahari Desert and feasted on a rotten turtle in the Georgian swamps that left him battling a parasite for the next year.

SURVIVORMAN is produced for Discovery Channel by Survivorman Productions, Inc, where Les Stroud is the executive producer. For Discovery Channel, Joshua C. Berkley is the executive producer.
