DISCOVERY EN ESPAÑOL: A WORLD OF ADVENTURE FOR THE NEW YEAR
The network kicks off 2017 with the premiere of its original series ‘Desafío x 2: México’, and new seasons of ‘Alaska: la última frontera’ and ‘Supervivencia al desnudo: edición extrema’
PR Newswire, Miami, Florida, January 10, 2017
Discovery en Español welcomes the new year with adrenaline-filled premieres on its popular programming block ‘Jueves de Aventura,’ highlighting the original production DESAFÍO X 2: MÉXICO, where two survival experts from Colombia and México, will test their skills in inhospitable territories of Chiapas, Veracruz and Puebla. DESAFÍO X 2: MÉXICO premieres January 12 and will air on Thursdays at 11PM E/P.
Each of the six episodes will feature Colombian adventurer Daniel Tirado and Mexican army veteran Alberto Pegueros surviving in extremely remote wild Aztec lands and putting their skills and knowledge into practice in order to make their way back to civilization safe and sound. Together, they have to avoid danger, predators, and find food, water and shelter. However, conflicts are not only limited to wilderness, and each man’s survival skills might not always match those of his partner, so combining techniques and living together could become the greatest of challenges for both men.
DESAFÍO X 2: MÉXICO is an original production by Discovery en Español under the supervision of Michela Giorelli, Vice President of Production and Development, and Javier Chuecos, Production Supervisor.
As part of ‘Jueves de Aventura’ (#DiscoveryAventura), Discovery en Español also brings the following action-filled premieres full of adrenaline, new challenges, and countless extreme situations:

SUPERVIVENCIA AL DESNUDO: EDICIÓN EXTREMA - new season - Thursdays at 10PM E/P
