U.S. cable network History is to begin airing the eight-episode reality series American Jungle on November 10.

Produced by Hollywood-based indie This is Just a Test Productions, the show follows several Hawaiian clans as they live off the land, hunt with knives and spears, and battle to protect their territories.

The clans include the Super Clan, descendants from Hawaiian royalty who are led by Scott, who once turned his back on his family and his looking for redemption; the Rosa Clan, who live off the land and have been feuding with the Correa Clan for 40 years; and the Blood Clan, led by college football star Johnny Blaze.

There is also the Cowboy Clan, led by a skilled horseman named Curly; and the Ocean Clan, which is led by the unpredictable Chewy and Prophet. Finally, the Outsiders are a group that does not own trails and are thus not respected among the clans.

The executive producers on the series are Aengus James and Colin King Miller for This is Just a Test, and Julian P. Hobbs for History.
