Private jets, after parties, sparkling swag bags and a coterie of personal assistants, publicists, agents and managers. Why would anyone trade this for two days of roughing it in the wilderness? In Running Wild With Bear Grylls, the famed adventurer and survivalist will take six celebrities into wild and remote locations for a journey of a lifetime.
The celebrities who will be teamed up with Bear in their own stand-alone episodes are Zac Efron, Ben Stiller, Channing Tatum, Tom Arnold, NFL Hall of Famer Deion Sanders, and anchor Tamron Hall.
Together, they will endure the harsh wilderness and run a high-stakes gauntlet of mental and physical obstacles, with a reward of spiritual renewal waiting at each remote extraction point. From skydiving into the Catskill Mountains, to rappelling down the cliffs of Utah, to battling torrential wind and rain in Scotland, Bear and each of them will have to push both their minds and bodies to the limit.
Commenting on the programme, Rahul Johri, EVP & GM – South Asia and Southeast Asia, Discovery Networks Asia-Pacific said, “Bear Grylls has an ever-growing popularity in India. An ultimate survival expert, Bear travels the planet to give a complete picture of survival. In this new series, he travels with celebrities and inspires viewers how to survive in some of the world’s most desolate terrains.”
Join Bear and the celebrities as they step out of their comfort zones and embark on their individual high-octane, action-filled empowering journeys on each hour-long episode.
Running Wild With Bear Grylls premiers February 13 on Discovery Channel and will air Friday to Sunday at 9 pm.
