Metallica’s James Hetfield to Narrate History Series

Metallica’s James Hetfield will switch from singer to narrator when he lends his voice to “The Hunt,” an eight-episode docuseries following a group of hunters in pursuit of the Kodiak brown bear. 

The hunt takes place twice a year in Kodiak, Alaska, and is heavily regulated by the state’s  department of fish and game. Thousands of hunters apply for one of 496 tags assigned via a lottery system and those chosen must live off the land for the 10-day hunt, using only the supplies they and their guides can carry. 

Most hunters employ minimal technology and use a bow-and-arrow or black powder single-shot rifles in their pursuit. 

The series is produced by Twofour America for History, with Seth Goolnik, Austin Reading, Grady Candler and Danny Villa serving as exec producers. Elaine Frontain Bryant, Tim Healy and Matt Ginsburg serve as exec producers for History.

“The Hunt” premieres June 8.
