If you’ve hit rock bottom, all you have to do is turn to nature.
That’s what adventure and survival expert Tim Medvetz believes, and he’s proving it to be true in Nat Geo WILD’s newest series, “Going Wild.” Medvetz takes down-on-their-luck people out on a rigorous three-day wildlife intervention adventure, allowing them to rediscover themselves and forcing them to face their fears and problems head on.
And they have no warning, either. After talking to their loved ones, Medvetz drops in as a surprise to take these people away and throw them into remote and unforgiving locations. He pushes people to their absolute limits, navigating life-threatening terrain, hunting for food and water and forcing them to build their own shelter in brutal locations like Mount St. Helens in Washington, the Owyhee Canyon lands on the border of Oregon, Nevada and Idaho and the Moab Desert in Utah.
Zap2it has an exclusive first look at the premiere episode, featuring Kym and Michael Cook, a married, divorced and remarried couple who need Medvetz’s help to repair their strained relationship. By forcing Kym and Michael to rely on each other for survival, can Medvetz help put the spark back into their love life?
