MIAMI, Aug. 23, 2018 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — Not all outlaw towns disappeared along with the Wild West. In Canada’s Northwest Territories lays an isolated frozen lake where people reside free from taxation and the rule of law. The inhabitants of Great Slave Lake live entirely according to their own standards; however, their frozen utopia isn’t always what it’s cracked up to be – especially when the ice begins to crack beneath their homes. SOBREVIVIENTES DEL HIELO premieres Thursday, August 30 at 10pm E/P.
The new Discovery en Español series reveals a world free of regulations where fearless men and women battle hunger, perilous terrain and the constant threat of freezing to death just for the chance to live life off the grid.
The first of 10 one-hour episodes kicks off a few days before the lake’s winter freeze. During this pivotal period, one wrong move could mean losing your home – or your life. But those who make it through the freeze still face extreme adversity: they need to find food and maintain their houses and heat sources to survive the ever-changing conditions on the five-foot-thick frozen ice sheet. The danger escalates when the seasons change, and spring brings the thaw. The surface of the Great Slave ice cracks apart, and everything on top of it shifts, leaving the rebels in fear for their homes and their safety.
SOBREVIVIENTES DEL HIELO questions the tradeoff: is a lawless, liberated life worth the never-ending cycle of hard work, danger and uncertainty, or do the risks outweigh the rewards?
The premiere of SOBREVIVIENTES DEL HIELO will be available in the “Discovery en Español GO” app on August 30. The second episode of the series will also be available exclusively to users on the app before the airing date.
