TOUGHER CHALLENGES, HARSHER ENVIRONMENTS AND BIG CHANGES COMING IN FOURTH SEASON OF DISCOVERY’S ‘DUAL SURVIVAL’
Season Premieres Wednesday, April 23 at 9PM ET/PT
March 28, 2014
(Los Angeles, CA)- Discovery Channel's DUAL SURVIVAL returns for an all-new season on Wednesday, April 23 at 9PM ET/PT. Joseph Teti and Cody Lundin - two men with drastically different backgrounds and survival strategies - must join forces to take on some of the planet's most unforgiving terrain in order to stay alive. This season the challenges are bigger, the environments are more extreme and the differences between the two men couldn't be greater.
Returning this season is Cody Lundin, a survival veteran who honed his skills living in the deserts and mountains with little modern tools, equipment or assistance. Lundin is a professional survival instructor and has been going barefoot for more than two decades as part of his indigenous survival strategy. Also returning this season is Joseph Teti, a combat-tested special operations veteran and graduate of more than 30 formal schools related to special operations. His training in the art of staying alive has helped him survive countless classified missions in Afghanistan and Iraq. Together they could be the most formidable survival team on the planet - if only they could agree on strategy.
In each episode of DUAL SURVIVAL, the duo is dropped into a survival scenario. This season, Lundin and Teti will tough it out in the endless mangroves of Sri Lanka, the blazing Arabian desert in Oman, the snow-capped Norwegian mountains and more. Equipped only with the minimal gear that would have been carried in the real-life situations, Lundin and Teti must draw upon their arsenal of skills as well as their surroundings to demonstrate what it takes to stay alive. Can they make it out of one of the thickest jungles in the world? Build a shelter among glaciers and winds blowing at 50 miles-per-hour? Or navigate a crocodile infested lake without a boat? The stakes are higher than ever before and as a twist of events unravels throughout the season, one member of DUAL SURVIVAL will leave the show for good.
"Joe and Cody take on some of the toughest environments in the world, and their vastly different survival styles push them to the breaking point," said Discovery Executive Producer Joshua C. Berkley. "Teamwork in the wild can mean the difference between life and death, a harsh fact that Cody and Joe come face to face with. This may be the most demanding and shocking season yet, and one of these men won't finish what he started." The new season of DUAL SURVIVAL kicks off on Wednesday, April 23 at 9PM ET/PT.
DUAL SURVIVAL is produced for Discovery Channel by Original Media, where Charlie Corwin and Daniel Laikind are executive producers and Brian Nashel is executive producer and showrunner. For Discovery Channel, Joshua C. Berkley is executive producer with Veronica Seder as coordinating producer.
