“Man vs. Wild” star Bear Grylls and the Discovery Channel have parted ways after nearly six years. “Due to a continuing contractual dispute with Bear Grylls, Discovery has terminated all current productions with him,” a network source told The Hollywood Reporter.
Other sources indicated that Grylls refused to participate in two of Discovery’s upcoming projects, fueling the heated feud further. The outdoorsman and former British Army Special Air serviceman has parlayed his “Man vs. Wild” fame into an oeuvre that contains a signature clothing line, endorsement deals, books and survival guides, a video game and an iPhone app.
