Produced by Original Media and Punchdrunk, the show follows five cargo haulers who travel via packhorse, dogsled, powerboat, snowmobile and bush plane across wilderness and rough terrain in the United States.

The cast includes Brice Barnes (pictured), who has been traveling the rapids of Hells Canyon on a jet boat age 13 years old; Andy Breland, who has spent two decades working with packhorses in Montana’s Flathead National Forest with partner  Chuck Allen; pilot Rob Kindkade; Roger Phillips, who hauls cargo via snowmobile in Alaska; and dog musher Jeff Hemann, who is also based in Alaska.

Executive producers are Original Media’s Glenda Hersh, Steven Weinstock, Jeff Sells and Lisa J. Bloch. Rob Hill is exec producing for Punchdrunk and Michael Welsh is the executive producer for the network.

Dead End Express premieres on May 7 at 10 pm EST/9 pm CST.

Last week, National Geographic Channel unveiled a 2015-2016 slate heavy on adventure-oriented series and science programming during its upfront presentation in New York City.
