NBC logoPresident Obama will learn survival skills with RUNNING WILD WITH BEAR GRYLLS, NBC announced.

Grylls will take President Obama through the Alaska wilderness — and observe the effect of climate change on the state — during the president’s upcoming trip to Alaska. The episode will air on NBC later this year.

Here’s what NBC has to say about the spot…

“NBC and Electus today announced that President Barack Obama will trek through the wilderness with survival expert Bear Grylls for a Special Edition of “Running Wild with Bear Grylls,” during a visit to Alaska.

President Obama will meet with Grylls while visiting Alaska to observe the effects of climate change on the area. The two will then come together in the Alaskan Wilderness.  President Obama will become the first U.S. president to receive a crash course in survival techniques from Bear Grylls.  The visit will be taped and aired on NBC later this year.

Now in its second season on NBC, “Running Wild with Bear Grylls” follows Grylls as he takes America’s biggest celebrities – including Kate Winslet, Drew Brees, Kate Hudson, Zac Efron, Michelle Rodriguez and Channing Tatum  – on one-on-one adventures that test their survival skills and push them to their mental and physical limits.

Along with Bear Grylls, the journey will be produced by Delbert Shoopman and Dave Pearce of Bear Grylls Ventures, Chris Grant, Viki Cacciatore and Liz Schulze of Electus.”
