Discovery launches exciting new programming this quarter

MUMBAI: Starting the third quarter of the year on a renewed note, Discovery Channel is launching over 130 hours of fresh programming which will include 22 new series and four new seasons of returning series on the channel.


Viewers will be treated an innovative mix of series which will include Ice Col Gold, Naked Castaway, The Mind Control Freaks and Deadly Dilemmas amongst others.


Showcasing the world's largest island - Greenland, is the show ‘Ice Cold Gold’. The captivating series focuses on ice cold miners following American speculators as they fight against the freezing elements, international miners and four short summer months to claim their stake at the top of the world.


Naked Castaway features the world renowned survivalist and adventurer Ed Stafford, tackling the challenges of any environment, with nothing except his camera. He finds everything he needs to not just survive, but thrives on some of the world’s toughest environments. With no food, water or shelter he battles every day, living each moment as his last. 


In Man Cheetah Wild, Kim Wohlter spends much of his time living in the wild among a family of Cheetahs. To get close enough to them to film their daily lives and interactions, he had to keep a low profile and survive in the bush for weeks at a time. The Cheetahs have gotten used to him and he learned from them.


Promising to take television at a next level is The Mind Control Freaks which blurs the line between science, psychology and trickery in an all-new format. The series hopes to demonstrate vulnerability to those who are able to manipulate the mind and use psychological tricks on the public to get them to do unexpected things.


The quarter will also see an all new series ‘Bear Grylls Extreme Survival Caught on Camera’. He presents some of the most jaw-dropping footage of great escapes and near-death experiences in this new, entertaining, fact-filled series.


 In each themed show, survivors share their stories, experts like Dave Salmoni, Gary Humphrey and Edd China provide survival tips and ‘how to’ advice - and Bear chooses his favourite clip of the ultimate survivor. 


‘The Deadly Cinema’ gives its viewers the chance to choose from a series of hypothetical scenarios that ultimately end in life or death situations, with real life case studies included in the show.
