(Silver Spring, Md) Surviving the wild can be hard enough but add to the mix a husband and wife who don't always see eye to eye and you have Discovery Channel's MAN, WOMAN, WILD premiering Friday, July 16 at 9 PM ET/PT.

Mykel Hawke is a former Special Forces survival expert. His wife Ruth is a television journalist. Together, they take on some of the most forbidding and remote locations around the world. Dropped into each spot, they must survive as a team for four days and nights, with only a knife and the clothes on their backs. As they test their will and their marriage, the two find common ground standing up to nature as husband and wife in the wildest places on Earth.

"The Hawkes are captivating and compelling guides for survival instruction.  The authenticity of their relationship coupled with the high stakes of their predicaments makes for a wild, memorable series," said Clark Bunting, president and general manager of Discovery Channel.

For Mykel, survival comes naturally Years of military training as a Green Beret have taught him to survive in any condition, but for Ruth every thing in the wild is still very new to her.  From building shelter to hunting for food to finding a route to rescue Mykel teaches Ruth the necessary skills needed to survive in different terrains.

MAN, WOMAN, WILD is produced for Discovery Channel by Renegade 83.  David Garfinkle and Jay Renfroe are executive producers.  Bill Howard is executive producer for Discovery Channel.
