"Dead End Express" is a reality docu-series on National Geographic Channel.

Across the vast and untamed wildernesses of the U.S., a hardy breed of American still lives a life set apart. Not just off the beaten path, these families and individuals are physically cut off from society by Rocky Mountains, roaring rivers and frozen tundra. However self-sufficient they might be, no man is an island, and sooner or later, those isolated in these remote locales must replenish their diminishing resources, whether fuel or ammo, or life-saving essentials like food and medicine.

This series follows five rugged adventurers — Brice Barnes, Andy Breland, Rob Kinkade, Roger Phillips and Jeff Hemann  — as they live and breathe the high-stakes life of hauling critical cargo into treacherous tracts of wilderness. By packhorse, dogsled, powerboat, snowmobile or bush plane, this fearless group of men risks all to deliver supplies where no one else can or will. From the dense woodlands of Montana's Flathead National Forest, to the isolated heart of Idaho's Hells Canyon, to the frozen wastelands of Alaska's high tundra, these true American adventurers live their lives on the edge — sometimes literally — and they've got the guts to go the distance, delivering supplies to an eccentric and ever-changing cast of fellow off-gridders.

"Dead End Express" is produced for National Geographic Channel by Original Media and Punchdrunk. For Original Media, executive producers are Glenda Hersh, Steven Weinstock, Jeff Sells and Lisa J. Bloch. Rob Hill is executive producer for Punchdrunk. For National Geographic Channel, executive producer is Michael Welsh; vice president of production and development is Kevin T.
