NORTH AMERICA

About For many of us, North America is our home. We live in this extraordinary continent each and every day, but have we ever truly experienced first-hand the wide scope of incredible dangers challenging our diverse and tenacious continent? If you think you know North America, you can think again. In this unforgettable television event, Discovery Channel turns the lens toward its homeland and captures a land where life collides with hostile, untamed wilderness in the most diverse, deadly environment on Earth. From the network behind PLANET EARTH, LIFE, FROZEN PLANET and AFRICA, the breathtaking, seven-part series NORTH AMERICA begins its journey Sunday, May 19 at 9PM ET/PT and runs through Sunday, June 16. Traveling the continent for more than three years from the sub-zero Canadian tundra to the tropical rainforests of Panama, Discovery's first, independently-produced natural history landmark series, NORTH AMERICA, reveals that "survival of the fittest" is truly the law here amid threatening terrain and ferocious weather. "Discovery Channel sets the pace when it comes to natural history programming", said Eileen O'Neill, Group President of Discovery and TLC Networks, "For this series it made sense to explore the continent many of us call ‘home'. I'm excited to include NORTH AMERICA in the ranks of Discovery's epic natural history programming."
