Discovery goes 100 Days Wild
100 Days Wild debuts on Discovery later this month
Discovery is lining up a new reality series that sees five people in search of a new life try to survive an Alaskan winter as nomads.
100 Days Wild comes from Sky Studios-backed New York-based Talos Films, whose credits include Ice Road Truckers, Vikings, Catfish and Cave of Forgotten Dreams.
The series is set in Alaska’s Tanana Valley, 200 miles away from civilisation, where the group, including an army veteran, a sporting goods salesman and a mountaineer, join a couple aiming to create their own off-grid, self-sustaining community.
The group has never met in person and now must work together to build shelters, hunt and gather the natural resources they need to establish the colony over 100 days before winter arrives.
The series debuts on August 21. Julian P Hobbs, Elli Hakami and Peter Goetz are the executive producers for Talos Films. For Discovery, Michael Gara is executive producer and Jessica Mollo is associate producer.
