ZOOLOGIST AND FORMER STEVE IRWIN APPRENTICE TREKS DEEP INTO THE OUTBACK TO MEET THE WORLD'S DEADLIEST AND MOST EXOTIC ANIMALS IN "OUT THERE WITH JACK RANDALL"

New Nat Geo WILD Six-Part Series, Premiering Sunday, July 7, at 10/9c, Follows Jack's Encounters in the Wild with Ferocious Pythons and Crocodiles and Kangaroos...Oh My!

(Washington, D.C./Los Angeles - June 28, 2019) - At just six years old, Jack Randall fell in love with snakes while he was watching a TV special on Venezuelan anacondas half a world away from his home in England. Studying invertebrates obsessively ever since, Jack left his home in England at only age 14 to apprentice for his hero Steve Irwin, promising Steve on his 15th birthday that he'd be a steward for wildlife for the rest of his life.

Today, with a biological sciences degree from University of Oxford under his belt, Jack is making good on his pact with Steve, inspiring fellow animal lovers with his work in the field and with his upcoming TV special OUT THERE WITH JACK RANDALL. Beginning Sunday, July 7, at 10/9c, the six-part series premiering on National Geographic WILD follows Jack in the Australian outback as he fearlessly searches for exotic, endangered and iconic species in some of the most unforgiving environments on the planet.

In this adrenaline-filled series, Jack literally goes to the ends of the Earth to go nose to nose with nature's creepy crawlies and wild beasts. He dives into crocodile-infested swamps, crawls through cramped caves laden with bats to find a rare 12-ft python and experiences a fair share of bites from 'grumpy' wild animals along the way.

"At the end of the day, I want to put all the passion I've got towards fighting for the animals that people are often frightened of," says Jack. "My ultimate mission is to meet every species -- up close and personal in the wild -- and inspire others to fall in love with them and be moved to protect them and their homes."

"No one embodies the Nat Geo WILD mission of entertaining, inspiring and broadening our understanding of our wild world more than Jack," says Geoff Daniels, executive vice president of global unscripted entertainment for National Geographic Global Networks. "His pure joy and infectious enthusiasm in every unexpected, edge-of-your-seat animal encounter is completely winning and something we haven't seen on TV in a generation. I fully expect OUT THERE WITH JACK RANDALL to be a true hit with our family audience, leading a summer slate of programming that's totally wild and fun."

Episodes include:

Premieres Sunday, July 14, at 10/9c on Nat Geo WILD

Wildlife zoologist Jack Randall journeys deep into the Australian outback to fulfill his lifelong dream of being accepted into a "mob" of wild kangaroos.

Out There with Jack Randall: The Most Venomous Snakes

Premieres Sunday, July 28, at 10/9c on Nat Geo WILD

Fearless zoologist Jack Randall explores Australia's remote Cape York peninsula to confront five of the most venomous snakes in the world, including the elusive Coastal Taipan, a snake so aggressive that some experts won't go near it! Along the way, Jack encounters huge pythons and terrifying tarantulas and joins forces with a local wildlife legend to determine which is the deadliest snake "down under."

Out There with Jack Randall: Chasing Giants

Premieres Sunday, August 4, at 10/9c on Nat Geo WILD

Out There with Jack Randall: Battle of the Crocs

Premieres Sunday, August 11, at 10/9c on Nat Geo WILD

Daring wildlife zoologist Jack Randall travels into Australia's untamed Northern Territory to the front lines of a battle between two different species of deadly crocodiles; the massive saltwater crocs are rapidly overrunning their smaller freshwater cousins. Jack helps local experts and scientists catch and track these dangerous living dinosaurs in the hopes of maintaining nature's balance.

Out There with Jack Randall: Wild Camel Chase

Premieres Sunday, August 18, at 10/9c on Nat Geo WILD

Australia's stunning Red Center region has a big problem - countless horses and camels whose ancestors were imported to help explore this vast continent have been neglected in the wild and now face death due to drought. Wildlife zoologist Jack Randall is teaming up with local animal wranglers on a mission to rescue as many of these animals as possible and to prove they can once again help people thrive in this unforgiving, desolate environment.
