Discovery has ordered six episodes of “Legends of the Wild” (working title), which follows two wilderness experts and childhood buddies as they investigate, document and try to solve some of the most incredible mysteries of the natural world.
The logline: Damian Duffy, a former Australian army paratrooper and certified wilderness guide, and Matt Hoffman, a professional wildlife photographer and storm chaser, are two adventurers who aren’t afraid of dangerous situations. They’ve dedicated their entire lives and careers to taking on and capturing Mother Nature and its many wonders. Together they will journey deep into the wild – risking it all – to find the answers to some of the world’s most hair-raising wildlife mysteries. From mysteries like unexplained sea creatures spotted in the icy waters of Alaska to brutal deadly attacks by an airborne predator in Papua New Guinea, Damian and Matt set off into the wild each week to find and document the answers. Then they have to make it out alive.
“Legends of the Wild” is produced for Discovery Channel by Hit+Run. For Hit+Run, Rob Shaftel is executive producer, with Noah Korn and David Story serving as co-executive producers. For Discovery Channel, John Slaughter is executive producer and Cameron Doyle is coordinating producer
