BEAR GRYLLS COMES HOME TO DISCOVERY CHANNEL INTERNATIONALLY IN AN ALL-NEW SERIES, "BEAR GRYLLS: ULTIMATE SURVIVORS"

(Silver Spring, MD) - Discovery Networks International (DNI) today announced the return of survival expert and global phenomenon Bear Grylls with an all-new series: BEAR GRYLLS: ULTIMATE SURVIVORS. This 6x60 series - commissioned by Julian Bellamy, Creative Director and Head of Production & Development, DNI, and Sarah Davies, Vice President of Development, Factual Programming, DNI - will air on Discovery Channel internationally, available in 217 markets across Europe, Middle East, Africa, Asia-Pacific and Latin America.

"I am super excited to be working with Discovery again - the channel where the Man Vs Wild journey began," said Bear Grylls. "BEAR GRYLLS: ULTIMATE SURVIVORS, and any future endeavors, will be intense-but that's where the fun is! Man Vs Wild took me to some of the toughest climates and terrains out there, and this new series is an exciting evolution of that. The aim is to follow incredible real-life survival stories and demonstrate dynamic life-saving know-how along the way."

"We are thrilled to welcome Bear back to the Discovery fold," said Luis Silberwasser, Chief Content Officer and Executive Vice President, DNI. "He is a true game-changer in the survival genre, integral in shaping it into the programming powerhouse that it is today. We are now poised to push the limits even further for our international audience."

"We are hugely excited about Bear's new series, which brings a fresh take to what he does best: survival extremes," said Julian Bellamy, Creative Director and Head of Production & Development, DNI. "BEAR GRYLLS: ULTIMATE SURVIVORS will pair Bear's unique brand of survival knowledge and techniques with some of the most mind-blowing survival stories ever documented. This show will prove to be a must-see for adventure lovers around the world."

In BEAR GRYLLS: ULTIMATE SURVIVORS, Bear takes his survival expertise one step further as he reveals the incredible stories of ordinary people stranded in devastatingly dire situations. Coupled with incredible archive footage and interviews with the survivors, Bear will pit himself against the very same dangers and scenarios, re-living their journeys through first-hand experience, and showing us how to survive through some of the world's most desolate landscapes. From a plane crash in the Amazon, to the remote crevasses of the European Alps, to the unforgiving North African desert, Bear navigates through ever more hostile terrain to show the skills needed to make it back to civilization. BEAR GRYLLS: ULTIMATE SURVIVORS goes beyond mere endurance skills; it's a revealing insight into the human spirit under phenomenal pressure. It marries emotion and real experience into a show-stopping format that celebrates instinct, endeavor, and the will to survive in the face of Mother Nature's awe-inspiring dangers.

BEAR GRYLLS: ULTIMATE SURVIVORS is produced for Discovery Networks International by betty TV. For Discovery Networks International, Sarah Davies is executive producer. For betty, the executive producer is Neil Smith.
