DISCOVERY ANNOUNCES SEPTEMBER DEBUT FOR THE POWERFUL, IMMERSIVE DOCUMENTARY SERIES "TAKING FIRE" (working title)

Five-Part Series Following the Unforgettable, Everyday Battles of U.S. Soldiers Premieres Monday, September 12 on Discovery

(LOS ANGELES, CA) August 5, 2016 - With its new series TAKING FIRE (wt), Discovery will bring viewers into the hearts and minds of American soldiers, a captivating experience like nothing ever seen on film. The series is the story of a band of brothers deployed to defend one of the United States' farthest flung outposts at the gateway to one of the deadliest places on earth: the mouth of the Taliban-held Korengal Valley in Northeast Afghanistan. Told by the men who fought on the frontlines themselves and illustrated with real combat footage shot on helmet cameras and handy cams, this material never-before-seen on television takes viewers along for a visceral experience not witnessed in news reports or traditional documentary portrayals of war.

Discovery's five-part series TAKING FIRE (wt) will premiere Monday, September 12 and will air one episode per week.

"TAKING FIRE (wt) offers our viewer an experience truly unlike anything they have seen anywhere before," said Rich Ross, President of Discovery. "This is a visceral and literal peek behind a curtain that few of us will ever see again."

TAKING FIRE (wt) will showcase the renowned and highly regarded 101st Airborne Division, charting one year's deployment on one base in Afghanistan. It is not simply a series of war stories, but a character-driven serial, showing the impact of war on a handful of men during the course of their year on the frontlines.

TAKING FIRE (wt) is produced for Discovery Channel by Raw TV. For Raw TV, Executive Producers are Dimitri Doganis, Louise Norman, Dan Gold and Rebecca North. For Discovery Channel, Executive Producers are Denise Contis, Matthew Kelly and Joseph Schneier.
