Nat Geo Wild Lands Adventure Series

Nat Geo Wild has set three-part adventure series “Going Wild” from Shine America, and will bow the unscripted program with back-to-back episodes on March 3.

Show follows survival expert Tim Medvetz as he helps Americans who have hit rock bottom take on a rigorous three-day wildlife intervention to face their fears head on. Medvetz has the resume for the gig, as well — a former member of the Hells Angels, Medvetz created 501(c)3 org The Heroes Project, with the mission of taking vets who suffered catastrophic injuries on climbs to the world’s seven tallest mountains.

“We have always wanted to do a show that takes people out of their comfort zone and into the wild in an effort to find themselves. And when we first met Tim Medvetz, we knew right away that he was the ideal person to make this come to life,” said Eden Gaha, prez of Shine America.

Exec producers of “Going Wild” include Gaha, Paul Franklin, Susan Hoenig and Jenny Apostol.
