NGC orders a new show ‘Survive The Tribe’ from Icon Films
MUMBAI: National Geographic Channel has commissioned the new six-part series ‘Survive the Tribe’ from UK production house Icon Films.
The series, which explores amazing survival techniques of ancient tribes through a series of incredible challenges in hostile locations, will premiere in the US and UK in July, and internationally later this year.
‘Survive the Tribe’ tracks wilderness guide and survival instructor Hazen Audel as he journeys to some of the world’s most inhospitable places, attempting survival skills that have kept tribal people alive against the odds for thousands of years. He has a week to study skills refined over centuries, and mastered over a lifetime, taking on the toughest tribal challenges that will force him to the very limit.
In the Kalahari Desert, Hazen joins an elite group of San Bushmen, hunting for game with bows and poison arrows. Braving sub-zero temperatures in Mongolia, Hazen has only days to bond with a majestic golden eagle before tackling harsh mountains in search of prey for his Kazakh clan. And, embarking on an Inuit crash course in Arctic Canada, Hazen must harvest for food beneath shifting sea ice while braving a barren landscape.
National Geographic Channels International executive VP, head of international content Hamish Mykura said, “When it comes to Survive the Tribe in the Arctic tundra or desert bush, it isn’t high tech, but ancient know-how that means the critical difference between life and death. Hazen pushes himself to the edge of every challenge, mastering new quests with remarkable natural instinct, high threshold for adventure and exceptional ability to connect that global audiences will love.”
Icon Films creative director Harry Marshall said, “In ‘Survive the Tribe’, Icon Films combine classic content with innovative production values and storytelling. Hazen Audel is a breath of fresh air blowing through and celebrating the timeless tribal world”.
