Deadliest Catch creator Original Productions has been commissioned by Discovery Channel to find the next great bushcrafter in the adventure competition series Bush League (w/t).

Produced by Original Productions, the series will feature a group of wild artisans going head-to-head to prove who is the ultimate outdoorsman.

Hosted by legendary bushmaster Matt Graham, the competitive bushcrafting program will feature an elite series of bushcraft summits deep in the wilds of Utah, in which two master wilderness survivalists compete in a build-off themed to a specific environment, topography and primitive living challenge.

Over a weeklong build, competitors will craft a number of items, tools, weapons and structures using nothing but their survival skills, simple hand tools and the resources provided by their environment.

Graham will then judge each completed work using “the four tenets of bushcraft” that include materials, craftsmanship, function and liveability.

For Original, executive producers are Sarah Whalen, Ernie Avila, Steve Robillard and Matthew Braley and co-executive producer Adam Flacks. For Discovery, Joseph Boyle and Dave Freed serve as exec producers.
