The 10 x 30-minute series will feature experiments and real-life case studies from around the globe, and uses science to answer debates including would hiding underneath a metal caravan in a lightning strike save or kill you; which would you stand a better chance fighting, a crocodile or great white shark; and would eating only carrots or burgers for the rest of your life increase your chances of living longer.

Deadly Dilemmas will be series produced by Paul Connolly and executive produced by Gareth Cornick and Denman Rooke for October Films.

It was commissioned by VP of factual production and development Elizabeth McIntyre, and exec produced by Tom Gorham for Discovery Networks International.
