The eight-part, half-hour HD series follows globetrotter Eve Kelly as she journeys across dangerous terrain via boat, dog sled, kayak, horse and camel, to get to her skinny-dipping destination. Kelly recruits strangers to join her on her journey.

Robert Evans, Best Boy’s VP of distribution, marketing and interactive, said: “We are delighted that The Skinny Dip will be part of Travel Channel’s impressive schedule, available over an extensive reach of key territories and look forward to a new, long-term relationship.”

Steve Fright, Travel Channel’s director of broadcasting, added: “This original and highly entertaining format broadens our appeal and stays true to our remit of broadcasting the most captivating and engaging travel-themed programming.”
