Westport, Conn., January 12, 2012 – Outside Television <http://www.outsidetelevision.com/> , the only television network dedicated to the active outside enthusiast, announced today two new original, exclusive series from leaders in adventure entertainment.
Season Pass, a 13 episode series from Warren Miller Entertainment, which has chronicled winter action sports for more than 60 years, and Jeremy Jones’ Deeper, a 10 episode series from legendary snowboarder Jeremy Jones and Teton Gravity Research, are both in production and will premiere exclusively on Outside Television this year.
“We are excited to be partnered with both Warren Miller Entertainment and Teton Gravity Research on these new series. This is just the first step in expanding our presence in the adventure programming space,” said Rob Faris, SVP of Programming & Production, Outside Television. “We will continue to be aggressive in 2012 in finding new series that fit the Outside brand and our new national audience.”

Outside Television is currently in negotiations with several major cable operators as it expands its footprint nationally.
A division of Bonnier Media, Warren Miller Entertainment crews have filmed around the globe and have captured some of the most amazing moments in winter action sports. Narrated by Olympic Gold Medalist Jonny Moseley, Season Pass episodes will provide viewers with a special adventure and be themed around a specific topic, including the evolution of skiing and the thrill of taking an epic journey to find the best places to ski.
Jeremy Jones’ Deeper is a collaboration between Jones, one of the most influential snowboarders in the world, and award-winning action sports specialists Teton Gravity Research. The series will take viewers on an all-encompassing journey through untouched snowboard meccas, showcasing some of the greatest snowboarding adventures on the planet, including the Wasatch, the High Sierra and the wilderness of Alaska. Even more impressive, Jones and the crew forego the use of fuel powered machines and go deeper into the mountains using a simpler method – the human body.
