A new 10 part series called “Into the Unknown” will be coming to National Geographic by “Free Solo” creators, E. Chai Vasarhelyi and Jimmy Chin’s Academy. This new series will take audience members into the great unknown as elite adventure athletes face challenges like never before.
This series takes audiences inside the minds of elite adventure athletes as they recount transformative stories of confronting fear, devastating personal loss and Mother Nature at her harshest. Through intimate interviews and self-shot archival footage from surfers, climbers, snowboarders, wingsuit jumpers, polar explorers and kayakers, learn how they prepare mentally, physically and emotionally for their high-stakes endeavors. While breaking down theirprocess and their mindset, INTO THE UNKNOWN is a front-row seat to these risk-takers’ adventures, uncovering how they adapt and evolve, even after something goes catastrophically wrong.
“National Geographic shares our deep commitment to bringing honest and inspiring stories to audiences around the world,” said directors Vasarhelyi and Chin. “We are thrilled to be working with them again on these powerful new projects that not only push the boundaries of filmmaking but also shine a light on the incredible resilience and determination of humankind.”
