Jake filled me in on the details months ago during a range trip, but since the cat is now out of the bag I guess it’s fair game now. Jake Zweig, best known for his stint on Top Shot (where he walked out, claiming the competition was rigged), has landed himself a new TV show on Discovery Channel. The premise is that he and his group of buddies will blindfold each other and drop them into extreme survival situations where they will need to reach civilization in 100 hours — all while the rest of the team watches and critiques the adventure. There’s apparently a firearms tie-in as well . . .
According to Jake, the show was intended to feature tons of survival gear as well as jaunts through unforgiving territory — including firearms. And apparently firearms will feature in the show’s survival portions as well. It should be interesting to see a Discovery program where guns are actually being used as intended rather than being hacked up and mangled in a shop because it’s never been done befo’. In short, this has a lot of potential for being a really good show featuring guns. It’s set to premiere Sunday, December 8th at 10 PM.
