OLN welcomes the season’s hottest new original series, sure to excite all audiences. From master survivalist Les Stroud who returns to OLN with fan-favourite series Survivorman, to prodigy magicians and death-cheating escape artists, to the mind-blowing things the human body can do, OLN has it all.

Here’s what’s in store:

“You Can’t Lick Your Elbow,” hosted by future NFL Hall of Fame player Tony Gonzalez, is a guide to the weird, clever, and amazing things you can (and sometimes can’t) do with the human body. Airs Tuesdays at 9pm starting March 3rd.

“Fail Army” is a brand-new, high-impact, unscripted comedy based on the hugely popular YouTube channel. The 20-episode clip show features the funniest “fail’ videos, bloopers, pranks, and all-around entertaining videos in an easy-to-digest half-hour format. Airs Tuesdays at 9:30pm starting March 3rd.

“Survivorman,” Canada’s favourite survivalist, is coming home. Canadian Screen Award winner Les Stroud returns to OLN with “Survivorman,” kicking off the show with six special episodes focused on the elusive Bigfoot. Airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT (check local listings), beginning April 8

“Escape or Die!,” a new OLN original series, follows Dean Gunnarson, hailed as the world’s most daring escape artist, as he goes to Shanghai, China to defend his title as the “World’s Most Daring Escape Artist.” Airs Tuesdays at 9pm beginning April 14th.

“Illusions of Grandeur” is a new docu-series with up-and-coming street magician Zack Mirza as he strives to take his magic skills to the next level. On this magic pilgrimage to 12 cities in 12 weeks, Mirza walks in the footsteps of the greats and brings his brand of street magic to cities like Toronto, New York, Austin, Las Vegas, and Detroit. In each city, Mirza focuses on a different style of magic, including mentalism, escapes, and card magic. Airs Tuesdays at 9:30pm beginning April 14th.
