Sportsman Channel’s Original Series MeatEater Season Three Premiers Sunday with Acclaimed Author Tim Ferriss
Tim Ferriss of “4-Hour” Publishing Fame Joins Steven Rinella into the Alaskan Wilderness on January 6 @ 9pm ET/PT
New Berlin, WI – (January 4, 2013) What do you do when you need hands on research for your new book? Well, Timothy Ferriss found celebrated author and outdoorsman, Steven Rinella, for a Caribou hunt in the Alaskan wilderness and brought along a film crew for the hit series, MeatEater. Sportsman Channel, the leader in outdoor TV for the American Sportsman, is excited to announce the premier of season three of its groundbreaking original series, MeatEater, this Sunday, January 6 at 9 pm ET/PT.
Check out behind the scenes footage.
The new season kicks-off with Rinella and special guest Timothy Ferriss on an unforgettable Alaskan caribou hunt. Ferriss has been featured by more than 100 media outlets–including The New York Times, The Economist, TIME, Forbes, Fortune, CNN, and CBS. Tim’s new book, The 4-Hour Chef: The Simple Path to Cooking Like a Pro, Learning Anything, and Living the Good Life, which debuted on the New York Times bestseller list, features hunting as a resourceful way to acquire your own food, and his journey with Rinella into the wilds of Alaska will certainly test Ferriss - the widely-popular entrepreneur - with a completely new challenge.
“This season of MeatEater is truly remarkable on many fronts,” said Rinella. “To have Tim on our show is a unique honor. Our trip in Alaska will be a true adventure, and I know it will translate well with our viewers. Season three of MeatEater offers a lot variety in our hunts, including some eye-opening foods and entertaining guests.”
Ferriss is notorious for his quick learning techniques and unquenchable thirst for new adventures and the unknown. He is many things: self-taught, creative thinker, seeker of knowledge, successful and master of various languages – but one question remains: can he hunt for big game? Rinella puts him up to the challenge in the premiere episode as they travel to the most remote corner of Alaska to catch the annual migration of the famed Western Arctic caribou herd, all in hope of sharing a celebratory stew of caribou sirloin and root vegetables thickened with bone marrow.
