[via press release from Discovery]

DISCOVERY CHANNEL BARES IT ALL IN "NAKED CASTAWAY"

The first person ever to walk the length of the Amazon River, Ed Stafford, undertakes an extreme physical and mental survival challenge as he lands naked and alone on the island of Olorua with only his brain and bare hands to keep him alive. From the very moment he lands on the island, Stafford is on a race to stay alive as he can only last three days without water and three weeks without food. NAKED CASTAWAY premieres on Discovery Channel Sunday, April 14 at 10PM ET/PT.

Stafford lands on Olorua, an uninhabited island in the eastern division of Fiji, naked. He has no food, water, knives or tools - only a camera to document his experience as he attempts to survive on the island for 60 days. Plagued by limited resources, stifling sickness and mysterious island creatures, Stafford must use all of his prior survival knowledge and innate innovation to survive. Without human contact, adequate fresh water and constant sources of protein, Stafford attempts to dig deep within his psyche and push past his insecurities in a fight for his life.

Will Stafford be able to survive the entire 60 days? How will he cope with the sweltering temperatures by day and freezing temperatures at night with no shelter or sun screen? Will the lack of human contact be the toughest obstacle to overcome? These questions and more will be answered on NAKED CASTAWAY as the series follows Stafford through his emotional highs and lows as he attempts to create a sustainable life on an uninhabited island.

NAKED CASTAWAY is produced for Discovery Channel by Tigress Productions and Steve Rankin is Executive Producer. For Discovery Channel, French Horwitz serves as Executive Producer. For Discovery, Elizabeth McIntyre also serves as Executive Producer.
