Disney has announced that the National Geographic documentary series, “Never Say Never with Jeff Jenkins”, is going to be released in the United States on the National Geographic on Sunday 9th July 2023, and it will be released during the summer of 2023 on Disney+. An international release will be announced at a later date.
Travel journalist Jeff Jenkins didn’t step foot on a plane until he was 20 years old, but once he did, he started living by his mantra “life begins where your comfort zone ends.” His mission is to inspire those who look like him to travel without fear and push past their perceived limitations to experience everything the world has to offer.
“Never Say Never” follows Jeff as he travels the world testing the limits of his physical abilities — from attempting to climb 70–foot mountain faces, to rafting class 5 rapids culminating in 20–foot drops, to sailing in a windstorm at the end of the world. Throughout his global odyssey Jeff makes deep connections with locals and learns not just about the world, but also about himself.
The new series is being created by Hit+Run, Rob Shaftel and Jon Kroll are executive producers. For National Geographic, Sean D. Johnson is executive producer, Bengt Anderson is vice president of production, and Alan Eyres is senior vice president of production and development.
