TWENTY FIRST CENTURY SURVIVAL TECHNIQUES PUT TO THE TEST IN NEW SCIENCE CHANNEL SERIES "HACKING THE WILD" PREMIERING WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 15 AT 10 PM ET/PT

(New York) - In Science Channel's all-new series HACKING THE WILD, "Digital Survivalist" Andy Quitmeyer goes deep into some of the most remote parts of the world armed with nothing but everyday technology and science to survive the wilderness. Each of the six, hour-long episodes follow Quitmeyer as he hacks his way back to civilization using a hybrid of time-tested outdoor survival skills and a backpack's worth of wires, laptops and tracking devices. HACKING THE WILD premieres Wednesday, February 15 at 10PM ET/PT.

From a remote Pacific Island to backcountry of Alaska, Quitmeyer's adventures land him in some of the most treacherous regions on the planet, where he must adapt to each situation on the fly with his unique and innovative problem-solving skills. Using only the materials he has, including a coconut shell, an eyeglass holder and a stainless steel coffee mug - along with his knowledge of nature, he hacks repelling devices, traps, alarms and a heating system. He is also tasked with finding and cooking his food, and carefully navigating his way to stay alive until he can make his way back to civilization.

"Andy Quitmeyer is the only person in the world who can survive the way he does--- with a unique combination of know-how, tech and stamina. With Hacking the Wild, we mix primitive skills and modern technology to put a scientific spin on survival," said Marc Etkind, General Manager of Science Channel.

Quitmeyer is the world's first "Digital Survivalist". An award-winning author and leading authority on merging tech with nature, he has single-handedly created a new and emerging area of scientific exploration. He has been hired by some of the world's leading scientific research organizations, including the Smithsonian Institution and the Georgia Institute of Technology, to go to places where nobody else can, or would go.

HACKING THE WILD is produced by AMPLE for Science Channel. Executive producers for AMPLE are Ari Mark and Phil Lott. Executive producer for Science Channel is Neil Laird.
