Tour The 'Untamed Americas' With National Geographic This Spring

National Geographic's Untamed Americas debuts this springThe National Geographic Channel has announced an ambitious new miniseries set to air later this spring that explores the wild spaces that stretch across North, Central, and South America. The four-hour long show, entitled "Untamed Americas," was shot entirely in high-definition and will be narrated by Academy Award-nominated actor Josh Brolin.

The project, which has been in production for nearly two years, promises to take viewers on an epic trip from the snow covered peaks of Alaska to the wind-swept extremes of Patagonia. Along the way, they'll witness wildlife encounters unlike any that have been seen on television before and visit remote destinations well off the beaten path. While filming "Untamed Americas," the production crew braved rocky Peruvian cliffs, dense Ecuadoran cloud forests, shark infested waters and more. They also endured temperatures that ranged from sub-zero arctic conditions to triple-digit heat – and even managed to survive a surprise hurricane.

The miniseries will debut globally on the National Geographic Channel, Nat Geo Wild and Nat Geo Mundo, although dates for when it will begin airing have yet to be revealed. Keep an eye on for updates on the status of the show and in the meantime, check out the "Untamed Americas" preview clip below.
