ONE-HOUR SPECIAL FEATURES EXCLUSIVE BEHIND-THE-SCENES LOOK AT THE 2013 SWIMSUIT PRODUCTION TRAVERSING AN UNPRECEDENTED SEVEN CONTINENTS

CHEVY CHASE, MD/NEW YORK (February 5, 2013) - Travel Channel joins with Sports Illustrated for an up-close-and-personal excursion to the exotic locales featured in the 2013 edition of SI Swimsuit multi-platform franchise.

This year's Swimsuit production is a groundbreaking effort that brought the models and team to all seven continents - an unprecedented achievement -- to capture the breathtaking imagery from the farthest corners of the globe. This includes the first fashion shoot to take place on the ice-covered terrain in Antarctica. From battling sandstorms in the African dunes to traversing treacherous cliffs in Asia, we'll show what goes into capturing these singular moments on film.

"Hands down, this is the most fantastic armchair adventure you can take this winter," says Laureen Ong, President, Travel Channel. "We jumped at the chance to partner with Sports Illustrated(R), knowing our viewers will enjoy this fascinating and exciting travel show packed with extreme backdrops and locations. This is not an hour of just models posing on sandy beaches - this special takes viewers to all seven continents, spotlighting the most magnificent places in the world.
