Singapore – Discovery Networks International (DNI) has announced the return of survival expert and global phenomenon Bear Grylls with an all-new series, Bear Grylls: Ultimate Survivors (6×60’). The new 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.

“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 endeavours, 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 hugely excited about Bear’s new series, which brings a fresh take to what he does best: survival extremes,” said Bellamy. “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.”
