VIDEO: First Look: Spike TV's New Series URBAN TARZAN
"Urban Tarzan" swings his way onto Spike TV on Tuesday, March 19 at 10:30 PM ET/PT. The new original series follows the country's preeminent extreme animal handler, URBAN TARZAN (formerly John Brennan who legally changed his name to the one word URBAN TARZAN) who has over 20 years experience rescuing, capturing, and relocating dangerous and exotic animals.
This ten half-hour episode series showcases the unpredictable world of URBAN TARZAN and his Urban Tarzan Animal Relocation team, a privately-owned service specializing in exotic and dangerous animals, whose hazardous missions run the gamut from capturing deadly pythons on the loose in residential neighborhoods to tracking down lions that escaped from an animal sanctuary. He also leans on the assistance of Caveman, his right-hand man and reptile expert, in each tumultuous situation.
In the premiere episode, URBAN TARZAN and Caveman encounter a gun toting chimp, face a raging bull that terrorizes people in a corn maze, and use their wrangling expertise when an unhinged husband harasses his estranged wife by dumping a 300 pound alligator in her pool.
Growing up just a few miles from the Bronx Zoo in New York City, URBAN TARZAN has been captivated by animals and wildlife from a very early age. He took his passion for exotic animals and turned it into a career, becoming a professional animal wrangler and expert. URBANTARZAN is an animal advocate and sees himself as someone who is not just protecting people, but protecting the animal. He is constantly challenged with delicate task of keeping the public safe along with making sure the animal is not harmed in the process. Bitten or stung by seemingly every creature in existence, URBAN TARZAN relies on his intuitive sense of even the most intimidating animal.
