New Species - The Expedition of the Century
Making use of the state-of-the-art technology, this real scientific-adventure documentary follows a group of the most renowned scientists as they plan and set off for a major expedition within a still unexplored part of the Amazon jungle, in search for new species.
Moved during their journey to 2 different bases and altitudes of the Amazon mountain known as Serra da Mocidade, for the first time in 10 years of intensive planning these scientists will need to work together and help each other with no external support. They have only 30 days to become part of History! They will be split into groups by expertises. Our cameras will follow them in real time while they run against time to reach their aims.
Tension, drama, expectations, conquers and failure are just the beginning. The Amazon jungle is waiting for them!
