'eXplorers' bows on Friday; 'Momentum' debuts mid-March

Outside TV has strengthened its relationship with Red Bull Media House, announcing two new reality series forged from the alliance.

“eXplorers – Adventure of the Century” is a halfhour skein where legendary adventurers overcome extreme conditions presented in places like Mount Everest, the depths of the ocean floor, jungles or the Arctic poles. Cabler ordered eight episodes and will debut the program Friday.

“Momentum – What Drives You” profiles Red Bull athletes and the personal factors that motivate them to excel in extreme sports and adventure culture. “Momentum” will bow mid-March on Outside.

“By uniting so many of our complementary media interests,” explained Rob Faris, senior veep of programming and production for Outside TV, “Red Bull Media House and Outside are already growing the legions of deeply-devoted outdoors enthusiasts and delivering tens of thousands of new converts. We can’t help but think that ‘eXplorers’ and ‘Momentum’ will continue to generate more.”
