The world-renowned survival expert, Bear Grylls, returns to the Discovery en Espanol screen with BEAR GRYLLS: ESCAPE FROM HELL. The new six-part series, premiering March 6th and airing Thursdays at 9PM ET/PT, airs during “Jueves de aventura”, the network’s new programming block that features shows packed with adrenaline with characters that take-on extreme challenges and situations.
BEAR GRYLLS: ESCAPE FROM HELL reveals true stories and first-person accounts of people who have escaped from death in some of the most desolate and hostile places on earth. Throughout the program, Bear tackles dangers right where they have sprung up, dodging unimaginable circumstances to show what it takes to make it back to civilization alive.
Each one of the episodes of BEAR GRYLLS: ESCAPE FROM HELL introduces three stories based on real life cases that occurred in the roughest locations on the planet, from the heart of the Amazon Jungle, to the numbing cold of California’s Sierra Nevada. Bear will follow the same steps that the survivors took, analyzing the life-saving methods they used, the mistakes they made, and the ways they could have adverted danger. All the while, Bear shares his own experiences with viewers, revealing invaluable tips to be used in these types of situations.
“I am super excited to be working with Discovery en Espanol again,” said Bear Grylls. “‘Bear Grylls: Escape from Hell’, and any future endeavors, will be intense, but that’s where the fun is! ‘Man vs. Wild’ took me to some of the toughest climates and terrains out there, and this new series is an exciting evolution of that. The aim is to follow incredible real-life survival stories and demonstrate dynamic life-saving know-how along the way.”
BEAR GRYLLS: ESCAPE FROM HELL includes, among others, the real-life accounts of:
- Eric Le Marque, who endured eight days in below-zero temperatures in California’s Sierra Nevada. Even after falling in the freezing waters of a river, he kept walking until he was rescued.
- The French explorers Loic Pillois y Guilhem Nayral, who each lost more than 45 pounds because they lost their way in the remote interiors of the Amazon jungle for seven weeks.
- Polish-natives Maciej Tarasin y Tomek Jedrys, who got lost in the Raudal del Tiburon Canyon in Colombia after losing their canoe and safety gear, and had to fight their way through the rapids’ currents.
- Italy’s Mauro Prosperi, who was a contestant in a race in the Sahara Desert but went astray. He had to battle the highest temperatures on the planet for nine days without water.
In addition to BEAR GRYLLS: ESCAPE FROM HELL, Discovery en Espanol’s “Jueves de aventura” programming block will include the new season of the original production, VIVIR PARA CONTARLO (Thursdays at 8PM ET/PT), with survival stories from Latin America. It also will feature the premiere of SUPERVIVENCIA AL DESNUDO (Thursdays at 10PM ET/PT), where each week two people are dropped in an extremely remote location, without food, without water, and…without clothing. There, they have to try to survive on their own for 21 days, with nothing but one personal item each. The only prize for their accomplishment will be the satisfaction of knowing they were able to triumph over such an extreme challenge.
