, ,

Today Roku announced three new original series on The Roku Channel including “Fight to Survive,” “Reptile Royalty,” and “UFO Cowboys.”

 “Our latest trio of Roku Originals, “Fight to Survive,” “Reptile Royalty,” and “UFO Cowboys,” underscores our commitment to showcasing everyday people in extraordinary circumstances.  Each series offers our streamers a glimpse into an almost unbelievable world – with a mix of high stakes, fight, heart, and some humor along the way.”Said Brian Tannenbaum, head of alternative originals, at Roku.

FIGHT TO SURVIVE: Hosted by Akbar Gbajabiamila (“American Ninja Warrior,” “The Talk”), “Fight to Survive” is a primitive, social experiment that drops 17 survivalists onto a remote, tropical island.  Featuring fan-favorite contestants from past seasons of “Survivor,” “Naked and Afraid” and “Alone,” the series explores the true nature of “survival of the fittest,” where competitors can challenge one another by force – fighting for essential tools and resources.   The survivalists must endure not only each other, but also brutal natural conditions, on their quest to win up to $250,000. 

The eight-episode series is executive produced by Kevin Lee for Tollbooth Television.

REPTILE ROYALTY: Join social media sensation Jay Brewer, and his team, on their never-ending adventure of running the world-renowned Reptile Zoo in Fountain Valley, California. Working alongside his three daughters and a colorful group of fearless animal lovers, Brewer encounters one scale-covered tale after the next, as he cares for over 600 of the rarest and exotic reptiles on Earth. Each episode provides an all-access look at the day-to-day operations of the famous zoo, which is always jam-packed with laugh-out-loud adventure and unavoidable chaos.

The six-episode series is executive produced by Shawn Witt, Tim Cohen-Laurie, Mark Efman, Richard J. Green, and Kelvin Parker for ITV America’s Leftfield Pictures.

UFO COWBOYS: From the producers of the long-running hit “Mountain Monsters,” “UFO Cowboys” follows a group of ranchers, known as the Cowboy Sky Watchers, as they investigate paranormal happenings along the 37th Parallel.  Known as “UFO Superhighway,” this area is legendary for many UFO sightings and disturbances, with more supernatural and extraterrestrial sightings in the American West than anywhere else in the United States.  Using ancient tracking techniques and modern technology, this team expertly investigate mysterious activity throughout the ranches and farms of the American West.

The six-episode series is executive produced by Shawn Witt, Tim Cohen-Laurie, Mark Efman, Richard J. Green, and Kelvin Parker for ITV America’s Leftfield Pictures.
