Pasadena, Calif. -- National Geographic Channel has greenlit two new series, Are You Tougher Than a Boy Scout? and Wicked Tuna, the network announced at the TCA press tour here Friday.
Boy Scout, from Thom Beers' Original Productions, will feature adults competing with the country's top Boy Scouts for merit badges in challenges based on the Scouts' handbook. The six-episode series is set to begin production this spring and premiere later this year on Nat Geo.
Wicked Tuna, which will premiere this spring, follows the high-stakes business of bluefin tuna fishing in Gloucester, Mass. The series will follow the crews of four vessels as they seek the elusive fish that can fetch big money.
