This Week In…Discovery Buzz

Happy Friday, everyone! A couple weeks ago, Discovery Channel announced plans to air the documentary Sherpa to international audiences in 2016. Sherpa tells the tragic story of the disastrous 2014 avalanche on Mount Everest: coincidentally, a team of filmmakers who was on the mountain at the time to film the climbing season from the local sherpas’ perspective ended up capturing the deadly disaster. The documentary is making its rounds at film festivals and has been earning rave reviews. For a taste of what critics are saying, read what The New York Times had to say – and watch the trailer here.
