New Delhi: National Geographic India has announced the launch of a special show named Sunday Thrills with Bear Grylls, which will feature the adventures of Bear Grylls, popularly known as the world's fiercest survivalist.

The show will be telecasted over four weeks, starting from 23 May 2021 at 07.00 PM. It plans to take viewers on an awe-inspiring journey offering unlimited adventure, accompanied by stunning visuals and breath-taking cinematography, said the channel on Friday. The India special programming will also include shows such as Running Wild with Bear Grylls, Get Out Alive with Bear Grylls, Mission Survive With Bear Grylls, and Britain’s Greatest Adventurers With Bear Grylls

"Bear Grylls has become the embodiment of adventure and outdoor survival and we are excited to work with him and collaborate on a Sunday special that has been curated especially for our Indian viewers. We hope that this programming allows them to explore the world of the wild and adventure and keep the spirits high alongside their favourite icon," said Star & Disney India, Infotainment, Kids & Regional Entertainment Channels, president and head Kevin Vaz. 

Bear Grylls said, "Life has truly been challenging for so many people around the world this last year, but if the wild has taught me anything, it is the importance of resilience and a never give up spirit. With this special adventure programming across all these Sundays ahead, the goal is to take viewers with me on many journeys and expeditions and to help them experience how the wild places can transform us and inspire us to be stronger, more determined and to view the storms of life as times of opportunity. Together we can beat this and come through this challenging time."
