Lifestyle| Beau Willimon (“House of Cards”) Documentary About Karl Bushby’s 3000 Mile Walk To Russian Embassy


lifestyle_logo

(WASHINGTON, D.C. – AUGUST 18, 2014) One man. One dream. One step at a time. The legacy of adventure continues in National Geographic Channel’s (NGC’s) new special, The 3,000, as former British paratrooper Karl Bushby (@bushby3000) attempts to walk from Los Angeles to Washington, D.C. as part of a larger attempt to accomplish a record-setting feature.

Executive Produced by Westward Productions founders Beau Willimon (writer and producer of acclaimed Netflix series “House of Cards”) and Jordan Tappis (director, producer and founder of Record Collection Music), The 3,000 will trek along with Bushby on his cross-country journey as he hits roadblocks, both real and mental, armed with nothing but a pack of supplies, three cameras and a small trolley he calls The Beast. The result is a remarkable story of dedication, perseverance and heart-warming kindness from the strangers he meets along the way.

The walk to Washington, however, is only one chapter in Bushby’s journey. Fifteen years ago, he set out on a challenge to complete the longest continuous walk in human history. Planning to return to his home in Britain on foot, he left the southern tip of South America and walked up through North America and across the Bering Strait, becoming the first person in recorded history to walk from Alaska to Russia. After trekking 2,000 miles into Siberia, the Russian government placed a five-year visa ban on Bushby, forcing him out of the country and putting his dreams on hold. Now, one year later, this modern-day adventurer is walking from the Venice Pier in Los Angeles to the Russian Embassy in Washington, D.C. with his visa application in hand, in hopes of overturning the ban and continuing what he started in 1998.

Viewers can track Bushby’s progress through real-time GPS tracking on his website, and via Twitter and Instagram.

The 3000 is produced for National Geographic Channel by Westward Productions. For Westward Productions, executive producers are Beau Willimon and Jordan Tappis; producer is Zach Guglin. For National Geographic Channel, executive producer is Kathleen Cromley; vice president of production and development is Kevin Mohs; executive vice president of programming and strategy is Heather Moran; and president is Howard T. Owens.
