Naked and Afraid

 

(New York, NY – June 10, 2015) – What do you get when you multiply Discovery Channel’s monster survival hit “Naked and Afraid” by six?  A survival challenge unlike any other survival challenge attempted before.  NAKED AND AFRAID XL will premiere Sunday, July 12th at 10pm ET/PT on Discovery Channel.

Twelve of the smartest, most dynamic survivalists – all who have conquered the ‘Everest’ of survival challenges on “Naked and Afraid” – have been assembled to take on what could possibly be an almost un-survivable situation.  The women include: Alana Barfield (Fiji Islands), Dani Beau (Colombia), Honora Bowen (Brazil), Dani Julien (Andros Islands), Eva Rupert (Madagascar) and Laura Zerra (Panama and the Amazon). The men include Chris Fischer (Dominica), Hakim Isler (Himalayas), Shane Lewis (Costa Rica), Luke McLaughlin (Namibia), E.J. Snyder (Tanzania and the Amazon) and Jeff Zausch (Madagascar).  Discovery will air a “Naked and Afraid” marathon to reintroduce the audience to this dynamic cast of survivalists on Saturday, June 28th beginning at 10:00am ET.

NAKED AND AFRAID XL is a 40 day challenge, making it exponentially more difficult than anything that’s ever been tried in the past.   These six women and six men, all extreme survivalists with their own expertise, will find themselves stranded in a very remote equatorial jungle of Colombia.  They will have no food, no water, and no clothing. But this time, there will be 12 survival experts all vying for the same limited resources.  At its core, NAKED AND AFRAID XL is both a survival and societal challenge.  How will these survivalists respond to each other?  Will they band together as one large group or will they break apart into smaller groups to survive?  In a challenge this big – the survivalists will need to master the environment to make it out alive.

NAKED AND AFRAID XL is an intense survival experiment that will truly test the limits of human endurance.  These 12 survivalists have proven that they have physical and mental strength, endurance, intelligence, a fantastic survival skillset, and the will to survive in some of the harshest environments on the planet.  But they’ll need more than that.  They will need to push themselves far beyond their breaking point and then some.  By the 40th day, will even one of them have successfully proven they have what it takes to endure?

 

NAKED AND AFRAID XL is produced for Discovery Channel by Renegade 83; David Garfinkle, Jay Renfroe and Sean Foley are executive producers, and Steve Rankin is consulting executive producer. For Discovery, Denise Contis and Joseph Boyle are executive producers.
