KING OF THE JUNGLE: ED STAFFORD TO FRONT NEW CHANNEL 4 SERIES
Channel 4 have commissioned new documentary series King Of The Jungle, which aims to help better the bond between parents and their children.
The six-part series, which is due to film later this year, will be fronted by adventurer Ed Stafford. The series will be based in Costa Rica, where Ed will open a survival school for father and son duos.
The former Army captain will be joined by his wife Laura and their children across the series, which explores what it really means to be a father in the modern world, by putting the families through the "toughest outdoor experiences on the planet".
Ed said: "Increasingly, the odds are stacked against you as a parent. You find yourself having to swim against the tide to do what’s best for your kids. For me, connection is everything...
"This isn’t about parenting techniques, that stuff is instinctive. It is an extreme fast track to a deeper connection between dads and their children in a modern world where that is more tenuous and harder to achieve than ever."
More details will be revealed in due course.
