MIAMI, Jan. 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The popular programming block JUEVES DE AVENTURA (#DiscoveryAventura) returns in 2016 with premieres featuring adrenaline-filled situations and challenges in remote and inhospitable habitats, ranging from Alaska's Chichagof Island and Africa's Okavango River to the Rupununi Savannah in Guyana. The new programming, which begins on Thursday, January 14, includes the new season of MONSTRUOS DE RÍO as well as new episodes of ALASKA: HOMBRES PRIMITIVOS and SUPERVIVENCIA AL DESNUDO.
Although each series is unique and different, they all share a common thread: ingenious characters with the determination to overcome obstacles and find a means to remain alive, against all odds. Here is a look at the series that make up the exciting premieres of 'Jueves de Aventura':
Monstruos de río – Thursdays at 8PM E/P
For more than 30 years, extreme fisherman and biologist Jeremy Wade has traveled the world in search of strange and terrifying freshwater creatures. In this new season, Jeremy visits Botswana to find the aggressive tigerfish and braves the icy waters of Alaska to test the widely held theory that the local sharks will not attack humans.
Alaska: hombres primitivos – Thursdays at 9PM E/P
The Browns aren't like other American families. Billy, Ami and their seven children, often likened to a "wolf pack," prefer to live far from civilization on remote Chichagof Island, where they can go nine months without interacting with other human beings. In these new episodes, the Browns continue their race against the clock to finish building their new house before the harsh winter begins.
Supervivencia al desnudo – Thursdays at 10PM E/P
In each episode of this reality series, a pair of survivalists is left in an extreme natural environment without food, water or clothing. The two must try to survive on their own for 21 days with the aid of just one personal item each. This season, the action takes place in the jungles of Guyana, Belize and Panama.
