NEW YORK, April 20 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Gaiam, Inc., a leading producer of lifestyle media, announced today the release of two hit titles in May under its exclusive home video license agreement with Discovery Communications. The two titles, both for the Discovery Channel, are Man vs. Wild Season 4 and Monsters Resurrected.
Man vs. Wild Season 4 – In the fourth season of Discovery Channel's hit series Man vs. Wild, host Bear Grylls, a survival expert and former member of the British Special Forces, continues to show viewers how to survive the toughest and most remote environments on the planet. In 13 action-packed episodes, Bear treks through the icy wasteland of the Arctic Circle, eats scorpions for sustenance deep in the jungles of Vietnam -- and even takes on the "urban jungle" by using his unique skills in manmade, post-disaster terrain. From the depths of a live volcano in Guatemala to the North African Sahara, Bear shows how to survive dangerous situations where most people wouldn't last a day. The complete three-disc Man vs. Wild Season 4 DVD set carries an SRP of $24.98 and has a run time of 559 minutes. Street date: 5/4/10
Monsters Resurrected – Profiles six ferocious mega beasts including the Spinosaurus, a carnivore twice the size of T. Rex and Acrocanthasaurus, a dinosaur whose powerful death grip and scissor-like bite could kill prey 10 times its size. From the evidence, scientists reveal how these mysterious creatures looked and behaved, what they ate... and what ate them. Each of the six episodes also demonstrates what it would be like to have these enormous predators roaming the planet today. The set also includes the feature-length program "What Killed The Mega Beasts?", which explores the extinction of hundreds of fantastic creatures, including giant sloths and woolly mammoths, at the end of the last ice age. The Monsters Resurrected two-disc DVD set carries an SRP of $19.98 and has a run time of 301 minutes. Street date: 5/4/10
