Wow. Man vs. Wild star Bear Grylls has been canned by Discovery, according to the network.
“Due to a continuing contractual dispute with Bear Grylls, Discovery has terminated all current productions with him,”
……..a network spokeswoman said via email.
Rumors abound, of course. The Hollywood Reporter says that Discovery couldn’t get Grylls to participate in two unannounced projects that were part of his contract. As the show rates well for them, (1.1 million viewers), there must be something else going on.
Grylls is not a Discovery-only phenomenon. The professional survivalist has published 11 books (the most recent, an autobiography called Mud, Sweat and Tears, will land stateside in May).
