About ‘TALES FROM THE EXPLORERS CLUB’ and expectations
The series ‘TALES FROM THE EXPLORERS CLUB’ will portray the achievements of 50 real-life action heroes the world needs to know about. These people were Jim Lovell and Gertrude Bell as well as Ernest Shackleton, Chuck Yeager and Sir Edmund Hillary. Discovery Network hosts the program. Discovery and The Explorers Club will bring the most spectacular adventures of the legendary club to life in a new and unique perspective that the rest of the world has never seen.
With Discovery’s famous show Expedition Unknown’s, Josh Gates as the best-suited guide, TALES FROM THE EXPLORERS CLUB will take spectators inside Explorers Club’s New York headquarters to present the stories of adventurers who pushed the boundaries, suspecting to Earth’s highest peaks, the North and South poles, outer space, and even into deepest ocean trenches.
About the show, Josh Gates, the host, stated, “To me, The Explorers Club is a temple. I’ve often journeyed through its history-filled rooms and thought if these walls could say something. In ‘TALES FROM THE EXPLORERS CLUB’, I’m overjoyed to strip back the past and highlight the true adventure and influential accomplishments of our fearless members.” Last time in 2021, with support from the same Discovery network, The Explorers Club began another crucial project – The Explorers Club 50 (EC50): Fifty People Changing the World that the World Needs to Know About.
The program’s main goal was to consider the wide range of human beings on the cutting-edge of the expedition, and to expand the voices of those innovators. This project was instrumental in preserving efforts in Iraq and produced important research on space junk and orbital debris, promoted environmental stewardship in Africa to foster inter-tribal relations, organised efforts to conserve large areas of the Southern Ocean, Antarctica, and decoded the secrets from Egyptian animal mummies. It also studied pre-Hispanic Maya perceptions of self-identity in Maya communities.
Each unique episode will center on the substantial Explorers Club’s members and their daring achievements. How they changed the world; from a father and son’s dangerous mission to explore the world’s deepest oceanic trench, Challenger Deep, to Tenzing Norgay and Edmund Hillary’s first memorable summit of Mount Everest.
All of the roles have been performed by real-life actors. As stated earlier, the host of the show will be Josh Gates except for him, here are other cast members (real-life) – Nina Lanza, Jonas Olsen, Even Kovacs, Seheno Andriantsaralaza, Connor Wood, Jamin Greenbaum, and Ed Lu.
