Max Series: Expedition from Hell

A limited docuseries that uncovers a doomed expedition through the Amazon led by a charismatic guide with unclear motives, Expedition from Hell: The Lost Tapes airs on Discovery Channel and Max.

The series unfolds a stranger-than-fiction story of Mickey Grosman, a former special forces demolitions expert who took a group of amateur adventurers on a nearly impossible journey across South America. Positioned as a charity trek for cancer awareness, participants were to be part of a 5,000-mile expedition across the continent through the deepest parts of the Amazon jungle. Only one claims to have made it to the end…Mickey Grosman.

“Pulled from hundreds of hours of footage, every episode of this compelling docuseries includes terrifying obstacles endured by those who chose to join the expedition,” said Howard Lee, President of Discovery Networks. “As we dug deeper to understand the motives behind those who took part in this doomed adventure, even we were surprised by what we saw.”
