DISCOVERY BARES ALL WITH NEW SERIES "NAKED & AFRAID"

(New York, NY) -- What happens when you put a man and a woman - sans clothes - in one of the most remote areas of the world? The survival genre strips down when Discovery's brand new series NAKED & AFRAID premieres on Sunday, June 23rd at 10:20pm ET/PT, immediately following SKYWIRE LIVE WITH NIK WALLENDA. NAKED & AFRAID will move to its regular 10:00pm ET/PT timeslot the following Sunday, June 30th.

Discovery takes "survival of the fittest" to the next level with NAKED & AFRAID, where each week, a new pair of complete and total strangers - one man and one woman - will find themselves stranded in and, quite literally, exposed to one of the world's most extreme weather environments. This duo will be left high and dry with no food, no water... and no clothes. They must survive on their own for a full 21 days, with nothing but one personal item each and the knowledge that the only prize is their pride and sense of accomplishment. In NAKED & AFRAID, these brazen and bold couples will get acquainted with each other -and their new surroundings - very quickly, forcing them to question and test everything they may think they know about their acquired survival skills and instincts.

Will the nude castaways have the brains and brawn to endure the harsh conditions? Or will the challenges prove to be overbare-ing? Watch as each couple battles the elements, each other, and their own inner weakness to see who will triumph over the terrain or fail under the force of nature.

NAKED & AFRAID is produced for Discovery Channel by Renegade 83; David Garfinkle, Jay Renfroe and Steve Rankin are executive producers. For Discovery, Denise Contis is executive producer.
