LOS ANGELES (July 11, 2022) – Summer’s most-anticipated programming event, Discovery Channel’s Shark Week, returns for its historic 34th year on Sunday, July 24 at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as its first Master of Ceremonies. Fans can expect 25 adrenaline-inducing original episodes that deliver never-seen footage of walking sharks, awe-inspiring breaches and more shocking predations captured on-camera by dedicated science and research field teams.

“I’m honored to be your first-ever Shark Week Master of Ceremonies. Our Seven Bucks Productions has partnered with Discovery to bring you a very special (and bad ass) Shark Week. I filmed exclusively in my home state of Hawaii, these beautiful predators, Aumakua (Gods), are deeply revered and respected in our Polynesian culture,” said Dwayne Johnson via his official Instagram.

As the preeminent destination for shark programming, Discovery Channel’s Shark Week takes audiences to new locations this year – from the Exuma Islands in the Bahamas to Papua New Guinea. Working with dozens of the world’s most respected marine biologists and science institutions, the week’s program slate spotlights innovative shark technology to further research about these elusive creatures and their mating and migration patterns, while also sharing findings of a new, undescribed species.

HELL IS FROZEN OVER: AN ALL-NEW SPIN-OFF SERIES NAKED AND AFRAID XL: FROZEN





HELL IS FROZEN OVER: AN ALL-NEW SPIN-OFF SERIES NAKED AND AFRAID XL: FROZEN

LAUNCHES OUT OF SHARK WEEK ON JULY 31

(New York) – July 6, 2022 – While for many, SHARK WEEK means warmer weather, longer days and the promise of a relaxing, summer vacation, for a select few who have decidedly chosen the path less traveled, they’re in for a more… chilling adventure. Launching out of the upcoming 34th celebration of SHARK WEEK, is a new naked chapter, NAKED AND AFRAID XL: FROZEN premieres Sunday, July 31 at 8pm ET/PT on Discovery.

In the frigid Rocky Mountains, sub-freezing temperatures, hypothermia and frostbite are only a few of the immediate dangers at hand as 12 of Naked and Afraid’s most popular and experienced All-Stars take on 14 punishing days and nights in the frozen ice-covered wilderness. These top survivalists have taken on the bug-infested Amazon, the scorching heat of Africa and the venomous snakes of southeast Asia. To take their next step toward becoming legends in the franchise, they must beat the harshest conditions they’ve faced yet. Will they reach the next level and survive this winter gauntlet or will they be iced out of the challenge?

Dropped into one of the most punishing locations ever attempted – Montana’s windswept and snow-covered Rocky Mountains – these elite survivalists will be tested like never before. Their quest to survive will demand knowledge, teamwork, and mental toughness that only the most accomplished and memorable Naked and Afraid survivalists possess.

Inserted into the challenge as four separate teams of three, the survivalists will arrive with no shoes, no clothes, no food, and no water – only primitive tools and bare minimum raw materials needed to survive in the frozen tundra. While these survivalists are no strangers to the many dangers of survival, this location ups the ante. To find the scarce food in this frozen wilderness, the survivalists must compete with some of North America’s most deadly predators: mountain lions, wolves, and grizzly bears just emerging from hibernation.

NAKED AND AFRAID XL: FROZEN will bring back some of the biggest fan favorites and most beloved survivalists from the Naked and Afraid franchise, including Jake Nodar, Gabrielle Balassone and Ky Furneaux, as well as three All-Stars from the current hit season of NAKED AND AFRAID XL – Waz Addy, Trish Bulinsky, and Rod Biggs.

A full list of survivalists below:

Jake Nodar
Gabrielle Balassone
Waz Addy
Trish Bulinsky
Ky Furneaux
Wes Harper
Sarah Bartell
Jermaine Jackson
Joe Ortlip
Sara Burkett
Rod Biggs
Jeremy McCaa

In addition to watching NAKED AND AFRAID XL: FROZEN on Discovery, viewers can join the conversation on social media by using the hashtag #NakedandAfraid and following Naked and Afraid on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

NAKED AND AFRAID XL: FROZEN is produced for Discovery and by Renegade 83, an eOne company; David Garfinkle, Jay Renfroe, Sean Foley and David Story are Executive Producers. Daniel Hopps is Co-Executive Producer. For Discovery, Michael Gara is Executive Producer and Greg Wolf is Coordinating Producer.
