Alaskan adventure for Discovery

Discovery Channel has unveiled a raft of new series here at the Television Critics Association tour in LA, including one that abandons nine strangers in deepest, coldest Alaska.

Out of the Wild: The Alaska Experiment (8x60') is described as "a riveting depiction of man’s struggle against nature" that "captures what is core to Discovery viewers," according to John Ford, channel president and general manager.

Pilgrim Films and Television is behind the series, which will debut in April during Discovery Channel’s Alaska Week. Craig Piligian, Tim Pastore, Eddie Barbini and Adam Briles are executive producers.
