DISCOVERY CHANNEL DROPS OFF THE GRID IN ALL-NEW SEASON OF "EDGE OF ALASKA"

New Season Premieres October 23 at 10PM

(New York, NY) - Deep in the wilderness of Alaska, accessible only by bush plane or treacherous dirt road lies McCarthy, population 42. One of America's last frontier towns, only those with true skills and determination can survive in this harsh, remote environment. While many came here to escape modern society and live independent and free, one resident has a vision to capitalize on McCarthy's scenic landscape for what could be one of America's greatest and most unique tourism opportunities. Last season, with the forces of change set in motion the once tightknit community was left divided on McCarthy's future. Now, as the dangerous hidden force behind these changes is revealed, the battle to preserve the McCarthy way of life reaches a point of no return in the all new season of EDGE OF ALASKA, premiering Sunday, October 23 at 10PM.

Having divided the town with his ambitious project to open the old Motherload copper mine to tourism, resident businessman Neil Darish's impulsive decisions have now sent him over budget and behind schedule, forcing a mysterious silent investor to pay Neil a tense visit. Farmsteader Jeremy Keller, who came to McCarthy to raise his family off the grid, has always opposed Neil's plans to profit and modernize. But now, with the threat of an outsider so dangerously close to taking over McCarthy, Jeremy and his family will face the greatest turning point of their lives.

EDGE OF ALASKA is produced by Twofour America, where Seth Goolnik, Grady Candler and Roger Roddy are executive producers. For Discovery Channel, Mitchell Rosenbaum is executive producer and Lisbeth Lozano is coordinating producer.
