Discovery Channel’s league of incredible men joins to form Discovery Real Heroes, who will push the limits of endurance, survival and adventure. This March, Discovery Real Heroes will take on some of the planet’s most unforgiving terrains to demonstrate how to survive in some of the harshest conditions.

Actor Arjun Rampal has associated with Discovery Channel to present these champions’ thrilling adventures on screen.

Beginning March 15, every night at 10 pm, viewers will embark on some of the most challenging expeditions with Discovery Real Heroes, who include Bear Grylls, Les Stroud, Myke Hawke, Dave Canterbury and Cody Lundin. Taking viewers closer to the natural world, wildlife presenters like Nigel Marven and Austin Steven would risk their lives to encounter some of the world’s most interesting and sometimes misunderstood creatures.

Rahul Johri, EVP & GM – South Asia and South East Asia, Discovery Networks Asia-Pacific, commented, “Challenging the harsh wilderness in high-octane, action-based and empowering journeys, Discovery Real Heroes are perfect examples of endurance, both in reel and real life. 10 pm will be the new hour on television to meet such talented men, who will inspire and demonstrate how the right skills and some creative thinking can keep you alive in the remote corners of the world.”

The journey of Discovery Real Heroes will begin on Mondays with ‘Man Vs Wild’, where Bear Grylls will take on some of the harshest terrains of the world, chasing thunderstorms, escaping fiery volcanoes and scavenging deadly delicacies.

Viewers will follow ‘Survivorman’ Les Stroud as he travels to tough wilderness settings and survives with little food, no water, no gear, no safety or even a camera crew. Former Special Forces survival expert Myke Hawke and his television presenter wife Ruth, presenters of ‘Man Woman Wild’ will take on some of the most forbidding and remote locations around the world,  and will attempt to stay alive with only one gear – a knife. Bear Grylls will be also seen in his new series ‘Running Wild’, where he will take A-list celebrities like Zac Efron, Channing Tatum, Ben Stiller, Tom Arnold, Tamron Hall and Deion Sanders on the adventures of their lives. Promising a battle of survival, military trained Joe Teti and naturalist Cody Lundin will struggle through unforgiving elements of nature in ‘Dual Survival’.

The weekends will have Nigel Marven presenting his countdown of the deadliest snakes in different locations around the world in ‘Ten Deadliest Snakes’. ‘I Shouldn’t Be Alive’ will bring real life situations in which people who lived to tell their story of horror, recall their tryst with near death experiences.
