MANILA, Philippines – The all-new Discovery Channel series “Manhunt with Joel Lambert,” pits former U.S. Navy Seal and escape and evasion expert Joel Lambert in a real-life, extreme version of hide-and-seek against some of the globe’s most elite military and law enforcement tracking units – the Philippines Army Scout Rangers, South Korean National Police SWAT, Panama’s anti-drug trafficking unit Servicio Nacional de Fronteras, Poland’s border guard, the Straz Graniczna, and more.

To capture Joel, these highly trained national tracking units can use any assets available to them in a real world manhunt.


Armed with a basic survival kit and his wits, Joel is dropped on location in the Philippines, South Korea, South Africa, United States, Poland, and Panama with a head start.


He then has up to 48 hours to reach a pre-determined extraction point that only he is aware of – while being pursued by a different hunter force agency each week as well as having to face treacherous terrains and deadly wildlife such as lions, leopards, rhinos and more – or risk being captured.

Joel’s game plan is to employ diversionary tactics and infiltration and evasion techniques gleaned from his 10 years of experience as a Navy Seal, demonstrating different strategies developed in response to varied environments and the specific skills set of each tracking unit.

Learn the techniques used by each elite hunter force during combat or crisis situations, and how to minimize getting spotted and caught.

Joel’s background has well-positioned him to prey on each unit’s hidden flaw – but evading highly specialized tracking units and combating dehydration, hunger, and the elements might prove to be a greater challenge than he perceives.

Will his experience and skills be enough to help him escape – or will he fall victim to his hunters…or the environment? The hunt is on.

Manhunt with Joel Lambert premieres April 7, Monday, at 8:00PM in the Philippines.
