Shane Untamed, a new show on National Geographic Wild, celebrated its June 11 launch with an exciting premiere party at Angler’s Beachside on Okaloosa Island. The show follows adventurer and For Walton Beach native Shane Reynolds as he explores the globe for the last truly wild places on Earth. Attendees of the premiere arty enjoyed two back-to-back episodes of Shane Untamed about the Florida Everglades and Madagascar. Other episodes have featured remote places in Guyana, Djibouti, and Alaska. “This is quite a step up from the days of doing my local show, Destination Soundcheck, but that old spirit is still alive and well in this series,” says host/producer/editor Shane Reynolds (a.k.a Shane O). “This s the show I always wanted to make!” With the help of his wife, photographer Romona Robbins Reynolds, Shane has formed the television production company Color Earth, which has previously created video content for the Travel Channel and local clients like Northwest Florida State College and Beach Properties of Florida.
