Following Taylor Steele’s Proximity, Outside TV is proud to unveil a new series around the project: A Life in Proximity.
The new eight episode series takes a deeper dive into the stories Steele introduced in his film, following eight of the world’s best surfers around the globe in search of waves; athletes include Kelly Slater, John John Florence, Stephanie Gilmore, Dave Rastovich, Shane Dorian, Albee Layer, Rob Machado and Craig Anderson.
The series premiers on October 19 and will be streaming exclusively on the Outside TV Features App.
Check out the trailer and details below.
In May 2017, Teton Gravity Research and award-winning director Taylor Steele debuted “Proximity,” the movie, to widespread industry acclaim. Outside TV’s “A Life in Proximity” series builds upon the film and takes a deeper dive into the stories that Steele’s project tells.
The new show features the same athletes who starred in the series’ namesake, following them as they surf and explore some of the most exotic destinations in the world. Similar to the film, but now with greater detail, the “A Life in Proximity” series’ featured athletes are uniquely paired up, one legendary surfer and their counterpart from the new generation, to travel together in search of pinnacle surfing experiences.
“With talent so stacked on a project like Proximity, and so many intense locations explored, it’s almost impossible to showcase every highlight in the confines of one film. With the ‘A Life in Proximity’ series, we can take viewers further into these incredible trips and show meaningful moments that we just didn’t have room for with the original release,” says producer Taylor Steele.
“Having a full eight-episode series has given us the opportunity to dive even deeper into the personalities and lifestyles of these iconic surfers,” says Steve Jones, Teton Gravity Research co-founder. “We are able to highlight the diversity of each unique location more extensively. Getting to collaborate with legendary surf filmmaker Taylor Steele has taken this to the next level.”
“A Life in Proximity” will premiere on Oct. 19 and new episodes will be added on a weekly basis, every Thursday, over the course of the following seven weeks. “A Life in Proximity” will stream exclusively via Outside TV Features.
