From Channel Guide: Right around the time that the feature film The Legend of Tarzan hits theaters, Discovery Channel will be debuting a new series of its own to determine who can actually survive in and master the wild like the famed King of the Jungle has — American Tarzan.
American Tarzan, premiering July 6 at 10pm ET/PT on Discovery, should appeal to fans of the network’s other survival series, such as Naked and Afraid. Seven (fully-clothed) challengers gather on the remote Caribbean island of Dominica to take on Mother Nature’s most brutal challenges.
It’s a journey across four distinct terrains: jungle, coast, mountains and canyons. Over these challenging landscapes, the men and women must live completely off the land, while tackling punishing obstacles and facing conditions that early inhabitants faced hundreds of years ago, relying on nothing more than basic tools, mental toughness and physical strength.
