DISCOVERY CHANNEL DOCUMENTS NEVER-BEFORE-SEEN BEHAVIOR IN "TIGRESS BLOOD"
-One Hour Special Airs September 20 at 8PM ET/PT-
(LOS ANGELES, CA) Tigers are solitary hunters. But in the forests of Central India, a gang of four tigresses is rewriting the rules of tiger behavior. Blood ties them together, but instinct tears them apart. They are feared, they are relentless, and together, they are unstoppable. In TIGRESS BLOOD, airing September 20 at 8PM ET/PT, Discovery Channel documents the incredibly unique relationship between tiger sisters Mona, Geeta, Lara and Sonam.
TIGRESS BLOOD is a coming-of-age story as the four sisters battle each other for dominance over their homeland. Once the girls grow older and stronger, instinct kicks in and they must separate and compete to take their mother's place for control of Telia Lake. Their bond is broken and the family is torn apart. To survive independently, each sister must make one large kill every week - and alone, they each struggle. Desperate and starving, the four sisters make a startling choice. They join forces to hunt as a pack and take on dangerous prey, culminating in a never-before-filmed hunt of a tiger family taking down a sloth bear.
TIGRESS BLOOD is produced for Discovery Channel by Kosmik Global Media Private Limited. For Kosmik Global Media Private Limited, Uday Sinh Wala and Youla Khurana are executive producers with Akanksha Sood Singh and Praveen Singh as directors. For Discovery Channel, John Cavanagh is executive producer.
