Theresa Vail Pushes the Limits
Theresa Vail stars in the new Outdoor Channel TV series, "Limitless with Theresa Vail, presented by Franchi".
Theresa Vail – Miss Kansas 2013, a 2014 Miss America top ten finalist, a Sergeant in the Kansas Army National Guard and an avid bowhunter – is joining forces with Outdoor Channel as the host of a new adventure-driven TV series: Limitless with Theresa Vail presented by Franchi (Limitless).
Produced by Rusted Rooster Media, in association with Outdoor Channel, the new half-hour TV show epitomizes the bold character of its host and chronicles both Vail’s flair for adventure and her love of the outdoors. Limitless presents her compelling story of an all-American woman on a mission to overcome stereotypes, break barriers and use her personal journey to redefine all the things a woman should, could and can be.
In each episode, Vail will be in circumstances where she is constantly pushing her limits and testing boundaries. Audiences will see how she applies extraordinary grit and determination to these action-packed journeys and bold scenarios.
The pilot episode, “Stay the Course,” blends Vail’s adventure in the Gila Wilderness of New Mexico, where the rugged mountains provide a scenic and complex backdrop for a Katniss Everdeen-style bull elk quest, with a grueling 26.2 mile trek through the high desert terrain of the White Sands Missile Range. The trek is part of the Bataan Death Memorial March in New Mexico held in honor of the heroic service members who defended the Philippines during World War II, sacrificing their freedom, health and, in many cases, their very lives. Vail chose to carry an Army ruck sack filled with nearly 40 pounds of rice along the marathon distance to further commemorate the struggles of the soldiers.
Throughout the nine-episode season, Vail traverses North America in search of her next big expedition. She’ll climb Wyoming’s notorious “Devil’s Tower,” brave the rough waters of West Virginia’s New River Gorge on a whitewater raft and dangle almost 40 feet off the ground on the Xtreeme Challenge high ropes course located outside of Charlotte, North Carolina. The series also captures her harvesting the biggest buck of her life on the picturesque prairies of Kansas – Vail’s home state – and soaring through the skies behind the controls of a fighter jet.
Limitless premieres on Thursday, July 2 at 9:30 p.m. ET as part of the Outdoor Channel’s summer programming lineup.
