National Geographic Channel Adds Three Series to 2015 Slate

National Geographic Channel has added three new series to pique viewers’ interest in adventure and the limits of human survival, with “The Raft,” “Remote Survival” and “The Watch” slated for 2015 premieres.

“We’re working with trusted partners, taking risks and breaking new ground in showcasing diverse and fearless human stories,” said Tim Pastore, president of original programming and production. “Our audience continues to look to us for original, authentic and unexpected programming that embodies a sense of exploration and fortitude that is inherent of the National Geographic legacy, and these new series represent our continued effort to find new ways to bring these stories to our viewers.”

“The Raft” will follow two pairs of strangers as they are dropped in a life raft in the ocean, miles away from land.  The pairs will be left on their own for six days with a goal of surviving off of limited supplies and reaching land before their time is up.  Set for spring, the series hails from Brian Catalina Entertainment in association with Electus, LLC.

In a twist on the survival format, “Remote Survival” will leave individuals in the wilderness with nothing but the help of a survivalist watching from a remote location, who will try to guide them through the challenges of the landscape to get them out alive. “Remote Survival” is set to premiere in winter of 2015, from Eyeworks USA.

“The Watch” follows independent individuals who have made the choice to live in solitude, on patrol against natural threats. The series is set to premiere in spring 2015, out of National Geographic Studios.
