“ED STAFFORD: LEFT FOR DEAD is an epic new adventure series, premiering on Discovery Channel on Tuesday, October 10th at 10pm ET/PT, that follows explorer Ed Stafford in his attempt to escape from some of our planet’s most extreme environments in under 10 days. Subtropical forests, parched deserts and desolate mountains await him.
Dropped in the wilderness with no survival kit, Ed has just 10 days to reach civilization – pushing the limits of human endurance on the move. Ed carries his camera kit to film himself, but nothing else – no map, compass or tools. He must rely on his survival instincts and his will to live to combat hunger, thirst, fatigue and life-threatening obstacles.
The challenges that Ed faces are in fact so dangerous that an expert rescue team tracks him from afar – ready to venture out to retrieve him at a moment’s notice. However, the distance between Ed and his emergency crew means that certain situations could still prove perilous for Ed, given the risk that they arrive too late. The show proves that survival is more than just a test of physical strength – it takes mental agility and unyielding determination to make it out alive.
ED STAFFORD: LEFT FOR DEAD is produced for Discovery Networks International by betty and Base Camp Films. Helen Hawken and Ed Sayer are commissioners, and Tom Gorham is the executive producer for Discovery Networks International. The executive producer is David Harrison for betty and the series editor is Tim Walker.”
