WESTPORT, CT (Dec. 8, 2015) – Outside Television has put four new original primetime series into production to anchor its schedule for early 2016, while renewing returning shows “Outlook” and “Locals” for third seasons and popular newsmagazine “Dispatches” for its sixth campaign.
“In Search of Speed” marks a unique collaboration with the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association, given its unparalleled access to both the U.S. men’s and women’s ski teams and Olympic or World champions including Mikaela Shiffrin, Ted Ligety, Julia Mancuso and Lindsey Vonn, as they confront the international community’s fiercest competitors and most challenging Alpine peaks during the 2016 World Cup season.
Outside is adding another three originals – “Maverick Moments,” “Liftoff” and “UnReal” – to three more of its popular returning series – and “Outlook,” “Locals” and “Dispatches” – to complete a new primetime slate that consistently challenges the world’s most recognized athletes and other celebrities to surpass their own limits. Returning series “Outlook” expands its scope in its third season to feature key personalities like MLB Cy Young Award-winner Max Scherzer and Jimmy Chin, director of this summer’s Sundance-winning feature “Meru,” who are more recognized from their other activities but each share a deep passion as active outdoorsmen.
