SURVIVALISTS TO GO HEAD-TO-HEAD TO SEE WHO’S TOUGHEST IN DISCOVERY’S “THE WHEEL”
New Adventure Series from Pilgrim Media Group Pits Survivalists Against the World’s Most Unforgiving Climates – and Each Other
(LOS ANGELES) – Discovery is taking the survivalist genre to the next level with THE WHEEL, the network’s newest series from Pilgrim Media Group.
While most survival shows feature just one or two extreme environments, THE WHEEL demands that participants conquer eight distinctly grueling landscapes across the world, each requiring a completely different set of survival skills. With each turn of the Wheel, survivalists must tackle the planet’s most unforgiving terrains – including freezing tundra, parched deserts, rugged mountains and steamy jungles – one immediately after another, with little time to prepare what few tools and materials they have.
The participants are completely at the Wheel’s mercy, as its every rotation thrusts them into a new harrowing domain without warning. When and how quickly will the Wheel turn? That’s for the viewers to know… and for the survivalists to agonize and obsess over.
When a survivalist breaks down and taps out, the Wheel keeps on turning until only one is left standing. But can anyone survive THE WHEEL?
THE WHEEL is produced for Discovery Channel by Pilgrim Media Group. For Pilgrim Media Group, Executive Producers are Craig Piligian and Sam Korkis. For Discovery Channel, Executive Producers are Joseph Boyle and Kyle Wheeler and Coordinating Producer Brian Peterson.
