RAVAGED BY WILDFIRE, "YUKON MEN" RISES FROM THE ASHES, ON DISCOVERY, FRIDAY, MARCH 18 AT 10PM ET/PT
(New York, NY) - Clinging to the banks of the Yukon River is a town on the brink of civilization: Tanana, Alaska. YUKON MEN, which premieres on Discovery Friday, March 18th at 10PM ET/PT follows the residents of this isolated village as they carve their existence from the frozen tundra.
This season, the villagers of Tanana face extinction as the largest wildfire in the country ravages the Alaskan wilderness and threatens to wipe the town from the map. When the smoke clears, the land is in ashes. The wildlife they depend on has fled. They face an uncertain future in a world more dangerous than ever. Each man and woman will be pushed to their limit as they fight to adapt to the harsh new landscape and reclaim their lives on the edge of the world.
YUKON MEN is produced for Discovery Channel by Paper Route where Alan LaGarde and Nick Guettler are Executive Producers. Kyle Wheeler is Executive Producer and Brian Peterson is Coordinating Producer for Discovery Channel.
