Discovery Channel has set a January 1 launch for Lone Target, a rugged adventure contest that pits 10-year Navy SEAL vet Joel Lambert against elite military and law enforcement tracking teams that include the U.S. Army’s Phantom Recon unit, the Straz Graniczna border guard in Poland, South African International Anti-Poaching Foundation, the Philippines Army Scout Rangers, an elite anti-drug force from Panama, and a National Police SWAT unit from South Korea. Lambert will be dropped into unknown treacherous terrain with a basic survival kit and water, and will use diversionary tactics and attempt to evade capture by each one of those elite forces for 48 hours in a series that will air at 10 PM on Discovery. The show will then air in 224 countries on Discovery Channel under the title Manhunt, starting in February. So there is a lot of national pride on the line for these search teams.
