Digital Reality Series to Launch on Monday, December 17 with Six Episodes
RALEIGH, NC | December 17, 2018 – The outdoor lifestyle reality series – “Eva Shockey’s Outdoor 101” – is slated to launch on Monday, December 17, 2018 on Facebook Watch at 9 p.m. PT. The six-episode series chronicles the adventures of acclaimed outdoor enthusiast, conservationist and author Eva Shockey and her family as they traverse her adopted home state of North Carolina.
“I couldn’t be more thrilled with the results of our work with Facebook Watch. When we set out to develop the digital series, the aim was to create content that spoke to a community of outdoor adventure seekers and build an ongoing social dialogue about the world outside,” said Shockey. “Through ‘Eva Shockey’s Outdoor 101,’ my first foray into lead hosting duties, I want to mobilize and motivate my millennial peers to enjoy all that Mother Nature has to offer. And I want to showcase how much fun it can be to raise a future nature-lover in the process!”
Originally from Vancouver Island, Canada, Eva now resides just outside of Raleigh, North Carolina with her husband Tim Brent – a former National Hockey League (NHL) player, most notably for the Toronto Maple Leafs and Carolina Hurricanes, who has recently entered commercial real estate – and their vivacious two-year-old daughter, Leni Bow Brent. Eva was raised to love and appreciate the outdoors having scaled rugged mountains 8,000+ feet above sea level, camped out under a blanket of stars in subzero temperatures, and trekked through the wildlands of the Yukon territory. As such, spending active time outside with her family is second nature to her.
For her debut digital series produced by Texas Crew Productions, Eva invites audiences along for the ride, sharing her favorite locations and outdoor hacks to better the open-air experience. For example, she provides tips on what to pack (and what to leave behind!), how to fix your hair on Day 5 of your journey with no dry shampoo in sight, and what grill-tastic recipes to whip up after a long day’s hike. It’s the ultimate glimpse into Eva’s dynamic life – a life that aims to inspire audiences to gear up and explore new places, try new activities, embrace healthy habits, savor food and enjoy quality family time.
Facebook Watch is available for free on mobile apps, desktop, and Facebook’s TV apps. Go to https://www.facebook.com/EvaShockeysOutdoor101/ to follow and enjoy “Eva Shockey’s Outdoor 101.” The 10-13 minute episodic content is comprised of the following:
