Polar Bear Town : Premieres Tuesday, Sept. 22 at 9 p.m. ET/PT, 7 p.m. MT, 8 p.m. CT
Set in a unique Arctic town with true northern exposure, Polar Bear Town is a half-hour, 12-part documentary series that provides a front-row seat to some of the closest human-bear encounters ever seen on television. Every fall, 1,000 seal-starved polar bears migrate directly through the frontier town of Churchill, MB. The population explodes from 800 to 10,000 with the arrival of tourists seeking bucket-list bear encounters.
Armed with nothing but a flare pistol, young gun Kelsey Eliasson guides his clients among the majestic bears. His friend and mentor, Dennis Compayre, is a bear whisperer whose charm works as well with the bears as it does with the locals. Former hippie lothario, Brian Ladoon may not be a guide, but he operates a roadside attraction where his Eskimo dog kennel attracts curious bears and cash-toting tourists.
