DISCOVERY CHANNEL BRAVES COLD WAR TENSIONS AND SUB-ZERO LOGGING ON SIBERIAN CUT
PREMIERING TUESDAY, JUNE 3 AT 10PM ET/PT
(New York, NY) Sean Vann is an American Logger with a plan…a big plan. For seventeen years he’s worked in one of the most hostile environments on the planet, logging for the Russian Forestry Industry. Batting with old machinery, negotiating deals and overcoming bitter Cold War tension, Sean has had enough of working for the Russians – it’s time they work for him. SIBERIAN CUT, premiering on the Discovery Channel Tuesday, June 3 at 10PM ET/PT, follows Sean as he puts everything on the line for the opportunity of a lifetime in deepest Siberia.
With a recession, soaring fuel prices and strict government restrictions in the American logging industry, Russia is a promised land of bountiful timber. Sean has a 3-month contract to cut wood, set up his own operation and become master of his own destiny. Not undertaking this fortune-seeking journey alone, Sean uproots four American loggers to the frozen wilds of Siberia to work alongside his own Siberian crew. If Sean can fulfil his contract with the Colonel who runs the land, he is set to make hundreds of thousands of dollars. With the hope of great reward also comes added danger, and the men must work side by side with a Russian crew, who have a very different view of the world and way of working. If these age old enemies can’t work together, a new cold war could break out deep in the Siberian forest.
SIBERIAN CUT is produced for Discovery Channel by Raw TV where Sam Maynard and Jos Cushing are Executive Producers. Christo Doyle is Executive Producer and Meagan Davis is Producer for Discovery Channel.
