NEW DISCOVERY CHANNEL SERIES "LONE TARGET" CHRONICLES THE ULTIMATE GAME OF CAT AND MOUSE

--LONE TARGET Premieres on Discovery Channel Wednesday, January 1 at 10 PM ET/PT--

(New York, NY) - Let the games begin! Discovery Channel is going on the ultimate chase in a real-life game of cat-and-mouse, pitting ex-Navy SEAL Joel Lambert against the world's most elite military and law enforcement tracking teams in new series LONE TARGET. With only what he can carry on his back, Joel will play an extreme version of hide-and-seek in unknown treacherous terrain with nothing but a basic survival kit and canteen of water as he attempts to evade capture in 48-hours or less. Using diversionary tactics and survival techniques gained from his 10-years of experience as a Navy SEAL, will Joel's training, skill and cunning be enough to help him escape? Find out on LONE TARGET Wednesday, January 1 at 10 PM ET/PT on Discovery Channel. The series will also air on Discovery Channel in 224 countries and territories internationally under the title MANHUNT, beginning in February 2014.

In each episode of LONE TARGET, Joel is dropped at an unknown secret starting point, and with a small head start, must evade capture from a different elite military or law enforcement tracking team and make his extraction - in less than two days - or risk capture. Following the chase side-by-side with cameras capturing the action from both perspectives, viewers get to experience first-hand the thrill of the hunt as he is being pursued by: the U.S. Army's Phantom Recon unit in Arizona, the Straz Graniczna border guard in Poland, the South African International Anti-Poaching Foundation (IAPF), the Army Scout Rangers in the Philippines, Panama's elite anti-drug force, SENAFRONT and the South Korean National Police SWAT unit. With Joel's reputation and the trackers' national pride at risk, the stakes are extraordinarily high. An expert in escape and evasion, Joel's background has well-positioned him to prey on each unit's hidden flaws - but evading highly specialized military tracking units and combating dehydration, hunger and the natural elements proves to be a greater challenge. Will Joel succeed or will he fall victim to the military or the environment?

MANHUNT is produced for DNI by Discovery Studios. For DNI, Sarah T Davies is executive producer and for Discovery Studios, Eddie Barbini and Brian Knappmiller are executive producers. For Discovery Channel French Horwitz is executive producer.
