TLC’s new series ESCAPING ALASKA will premiere Sunday, July 27 at 10PM (ET/PT).
The series features five young Alaskan natives who risk everything to leave their villages so they can experience life in sunny San Diego. Although they find it hard to leave their families and they take great pride in their heritage, they yearn to pursue their dreams in the Lower 48. They will ultimately face the decision of whether to return to Alaska or leave home for good. ESCAPING ALASKA is their story of independence, survival, adventure and forming a new family.
Interviews with cast members and producers are available upon request. You can also check out a clip, screener of the premiere and photos using the links below.
