Discovery channel launches new adventure series DUAL SURVIVAL
In its new survival series, DUAL SURVIVAL, Discovery Channel introduces Dave Canterbury and Cody Lundin ' two survival experts with drastically different backgrounds ' taking on some of the planet's most unforgiving terrain. Their aim is to demonstrate, in their own way, how the right skills and some creative thinking can keep you alive. The pair is dropped into scenarios that could happen to anyone: marooned boaters, lost hikers, stranded mountain climbers. In the ultimate test of skill, perseverance and creativity, military-trained Dave and naturalist Cody battle the elements ' and sometimes each other ' on Discovery Channel's DUAL SURVIVAL.
This July, the episodes of DUAL SURVIVAL air every night at 10 pm on Discovery Channel.
Commenting on the series, Rahul Johri, senior vice president and general manager ' South Asia, Discovery Networks Asia-Pacific said, "Discovery Channel has pioneered in bringing real-life action through its adventure and survival series such as Man Vs. Wild, Survivorman, I Shouldn't be Alive, Beyond Survival. Demonstrating life-saving tips and survival techniques, the programmes have not only entertained and enthralled viewers but taught them what it takes to survive, using only minimal gear and what they can find in their surroundings. In its new series, Dual Survival, two survival experts devise extraordinary ways to demonstrate what it takes to stay alive."
In DUAL SURVIVAL, Dave and Cody are faced with survival scenarios that push them to their limits. The duo must draw upon their personal arsenal of skills to devise extraordinary ways to survive. From swamps to avalanches and sweltering heat to sub-zero temperatures, Dave and Cody will show what it takes to survive in some of the planet's most unforgiving terrain, including the Florida Everglades, made up of 4,000 miles of cypress swamp; the scorching deserts of Baja, Mexico; Tierra Del Fuego, Argentina ' less than 500 miles from Antarctica; the wet cloud forests of Panama, 7,000 feet in the air; and Wyoming's Rocky Mountains in the dead of winter.
Dave Canterbury joined the U.S. Army at age 17, eventually becoming a Special Reaction Team (SRT) instructor and sniper. He trained soldiers in the U.S., Central America and Korea in unarmed combat and close-quarter techniques. Cody Lundin, a 20-year survival veteran and best-selling author, honed his skills living in the desert with very little tools, equipment or assistance. He spent two years living in a brush shelter in the woods where he slept on pine needles and cooked over an open fire.
How will they use a plastic bag, lip balm and a parachute cord while trenching through waist-deep snow in the Rocky Mountains? What good is a broken cell phone, steel wool and elephant dung in the jungles of Thailand?
