ANIMAL PLANET'S NEW SERIES "PROJECT GRIZZLY" FOLLOWS ONE MAN'S JOURNEY INTRODUCING TWO RESCUE BEARS TO THE WILD

- Project Grizzly Premieres on Saturday, November 12 at 10PM (ET/PT) -

(New York, NY) Bear trainer Jeff Watson has worked with the majestic animals for more than 20 years but recently decided his two rescue bears should be introduced to the wild. In Animal Planet's new series PROJECT GRIZZLY, viewers join him on his emotional struggle to do right by his beloved bears as he teaches Bob and Screech, his two 700-pound grizzlies, how to survive in the deep wild. The six-part adventure premieres Saturday, November 12th at 10PM ET/PT on Animal Planet.

After making a life of rescuing and raising bears, Jeff Watson had an epiphany - bears do not belong in captivity. Jeff sets out to reverse the cycle of man's ownership over animals starting with Bob and Screech. Saving them at just six weeks old, he raised them as his family and now believes after three years, their destiny is to live in the wild.

PROJECT GRIZZLY follows Jeff as he embarks on a challenging mission to teach his bears how to be wild. To do that, he has to undo all Bob and Screech have learned in captivity. Settled in a remote location in Indiana, he teaches Bob and Screech how to fend for themselves by hunting and fishing, learning to hibernate and ultimately break their dependence on Jeff. While Jeff understands this is an incredible and dangerous challenge, he is sometimes plagued with doubt when faced with unforeseen hurdles, but his determination to bring these bears to their true home keeps Jeff focused.

PROJECT GRIZZLY is produced for Animal Planet by This is Just a Test. Aengus James, Colin King Miller, and Myles Reiff are the executive producers for This is Just a Test. For Animal Planet, Keith Hoffman is the executive producer, Pat Dempsey is the producer and the series was developed by Kurt Tondorf.
