ISM Entertainment & Team Treehouse Productions Announce Extreme Kayaking Series Hell or High Water

Reality Series Focuses on Kayaking Competition, Culture & Lifestyle

Hollywood, CA, August 17, 2012 --( ISM Entertainment and Team Treehouse Productions announced today that they are in pre-production for their new extreme kayaking web series Hell or High Water, with principal photography commencing in December of this year.

Hell or High Water is a reality series that will document the exhilarating missions of an experienced team of kayakers as they travel off the beaten path looking for their next big adventure. The show’s first season will be shot on location in Chile and Argentina and will feature the team making nearly impossible descents down treacherous rivers and death-defying waterfalls in preparation for the Whitewater Grand Prix---an international competition that draws the best kayakers from all over the world. Moving beyond the jaw-dropping stunts and athleticism of the sport, this series will also focus on the daily trials and triumphs of four of the world’s top kayakers as they navigate the challenges of this nomadic life. “Viewers will be amazed by what our team does on the water on a daily basis. ‘Extreme’ barely begins to cover their style of kayaking,” said Stacy Weddington, President of Team Treehouse and Co-Creator and Producer of Hell or High Water. “We will balance our extreme kayaking with an in depth look into the lives and lifestyles of our team. Our audience will get to find out who these guys are, why they do what they do and where they are taking us next,” Stacy said.

In addition to world-class extreme kayaking and breathtaking locations, Hell or High Water will feature revolutionary Interactive Brand Integration Technology, allowing viewers to engage with products while watching the show. When featured products appear on screen during airing of the show, viewers will be able to “point and click,” linking directly to brand partner pages via designated URL’s.

“With this groundbreaking technology, our viewers will be engaged in an interactive relationship with products placed in Hell or High Water. Brand partners will be able to monetize the 'impulse to buy' of millions of consumers who will have an immersive and en-powering viewing experience,” said Ian McQueen, Hell or High Water Producer and President of ISM Entertainment.

Season One of Hell or High Water will consist of ten 22-minute episodes (running time not including ad spots) and will premiere on KoldCast TV in the spring of 2013. Hell or High Water will be promoted and distributed worldwide by the KoldCast TV Network, free-of-charge to all viewers.
