MUMBAI: What’s the key to surviving one of the hottest climates on Earth or navigating through a river full of crocodiles?  Survival is not about finding your way out; it is devising extraordinary ways of using what you find in your surroundings to stay alive. 

Choices made in the first 72 hours of any survival situation are the most critical. Discovery Channel presents Dual Survival, premiering on June 27 with the next generation of survivalists, who are ready to tackle the toughest terrains and demonstrate how to make it out alive.

Dual Survival will air weekdays (Monday to Friday) from June 27 at 7 PM on Discovery Channel.

Dual Survival’s new survival experts Grady Powell and Bill McConnell will be dropped into survival situations that anyone, anywhere in the world, could one day encounter. These experts exhibit how the right skills, knowledge and mental attitude can keep people alive under even the most extreme circumstances. Each episode takes place in a different remote wilderness location, where Grady and Bill must put aside their philosophical differences and work together to secure the four key elements of wilderness survival: water, food, fire and shelter.

Grady and Bill will navigate unique survival situations - stepping into extreme scenarios with the bare minimum of resources that someone in that position may have - and live out the experience until they achieve the ultimate goal: making it out alive.

Grady is a former U.S. Army Green Beret with a "no quit" mindset, who passed selection at only 21 years old, and is among some of the youngest soldiers to have made it into the elite brotherhood of Special Forces Operators. A small arms, mobility and survival expert, Grady has run protection for high-level U.S. dignitaries overseas and currently teaches tactical skills to law enforcement and civilians.

Meanwhile, his new partner Bill McConnell, a primitive wilderness survivalist, takes a much different approach. Bill considers himself to be on a lifelong journey to connect with nature and often 'talks' to plants and animals in the wild. He is continually seeking out both indigenous and ancient skills, including fire making, tool & weapons manufacturing, and hunting.

The survivors face some of the most gruelling conditions in the following episodes:

Fire and Ice (Chile)   

New partners, Grady and Bill are dropped onto a glacial volcanic peak in the Chilean Andes, where they face 70 mph winds, heavy snowfall, and sub-freezing temperatures. Hunkering down in cave shelters, they risk noxious gases and struggle to get fire.           

Take Me to the River 

Deep in the heart of the Amazon, Grady and Bill climb ancient trees and commune with animals to navigate through the jungle in search of a river that could lead them to salvation. But the jungle heat and humidity pushes them to their breaking point.      

Eat or be Eaten          

Stranded in the Zambezi River Basin, Grady and Bill are surrounded by Africa’s fiercest, during the dry season, when every creature is competing to find sufficient water and sustenance. Only a successful fire and shot of luck can get them out alive.  

Scorched Earth          

Stranded in the Namib Desert of southern Africa, Grady and Bill rely on the resources of a broken down car for fire, shelter, and to signal for rescue. Without water, they’re forced to recycle fluids to rehydrate and illness threatens to finish Grady.

On Thin Ice    

Exposed on jagged granite peaks, in heavy snow and above tree line, Grady and Bill fight the bitter cold of Idaho’s Sawtooth Mountains. Here, Mother Nature throws a series of roadblocks at the pair, and a rookie mistake could end their journey.      

High and Dry  

Bill and Grady take on Oregon’s rocky and arid canyon lands. The duo is tested by the desert environment, lack of resources, and exposure in a place where only big horn sheep, mountain lions, and bears call home.         

Cuban Crisis   

Closed to Americans for over 55 years, Cuba is the site of Grady and Bill’s journey through uncharted territory. Here, they face-off against crocodiles, navigate tangled mangroves, fight dehydration, and struggle to get out of the water and find rescue.   

Saturation Point         

Bill and Grady head to remote, rocky coastal Maine where they go through a bog, face a nor’easter storm, and journey towards the coast. But the cold, damp environment threatens to end this partnership in a flash.       

Long Way Home (Chile)        

Stranded in Chile, Grady and Bill struggle to get fire in the damp rainforest, setting ego and survival protocol on a collision course that tests this new team. Only a successful primitive fire and hunt can reset the clock on their survival.
