MUMBAI: Discovery Channel is coming with its brand new series MANHUNT, featuring former Navy SEAL Joel Lambert in an extreme version of hide-and-go-seek. With this series Discovery Channel is all set to thrill its viewers as they can see Joel rescuing himself from the world's most elite tracking team units in some treacherous terrains.
The seven part series premieresevery night at 10 PM starting 19th May, only on Discovery Channel.
Filmed on-location in the United States, Poland, South Africa, Philippines, Panama and South Korea, each episode of MANHUNT follows Joel as he is inserted into unknown territory with nothing but a basic survival kit and a canteen of water; he then has up to 48 hours to reach a pre-determined extraction point, while being pursued by a different tracking unit each week. Joel is given minimal supplies to survive—and anything else he needs, he must to find along the way.
With cameras capturing the action from both perspectives, viewers will experience the high tension from both – Joel and the special operative teams. An expert in escape and evasion, Joel’s background has well-positioned him to prey on each unit’s hidden flaw—but evading highly specialized tracking units and combatting dehydration, hunger, and the elements proves to be a greater challenge.
MANHUNT is produced for DNI by Discovery Studios. For DNI, Sarah Davies is executive producer and for Discovery Studios, Eddie Barbini and Brian Knappmiller are executive producers.
