The new season of Manhunt With Joel Lambert starts Tuesday 23 June at 8:30pm AEST/NZST.
MANHUNT is the real-life game of cat-and-mouse, pitting former Navy SEAL Joel Lambert against the world’s most experienced hunting and tracking units.
In each episode, Joel faces a daunting task: after being inserted into foreign territory with nothing but a basic survival kit and a canteen of water, he has up to 36 hours to reach a pre-determined extraction point, while being pursued by a different hunter force each week – indigenous Maori warriors in NewZealand, nomadic Mongolian hunters in Mongolia, a backwoods survivalist group in Florida, the PGJE Mexican State Police Force on the U.S.-Mexico border, Scottish Ghillies in Scotland, and the Aiken County Sheriff’s Bloodhound Tracking Team in South Carolina.
Joel attempts to evade capture using appropriate diversionary tactics and escape and evasion techniques gleaned from his 10 years of experience as a Navy SEAL, dependent upon the environment and the particular skills of the opponent. With Joel pitted against what seem to be insurmountable odds, will his training, skill and cunning be enough to help him escape?
The hunt is on!
