Trailer for Mark Burnett's EXPEDITION AFRICA

Submitted by on May 7, 2009 – 3:19 pm 4 Comments

I received the following e-mail from my brother Thuy and wanted to share it so I can brag about him (I did get his permission to post it.) He edited and produced the trailer below, as well as several other commercials for Mark Burnett’s new 8-part reality series, Expedition Africa, which starts airing May 31 at 10PM/9C on the History Channel. Check it out—it looks amazing!


I’ve been busy the past few months working on a launch campaign and theatrical trailer for Executive Producer Mark Burnett’s latest show, Expedition Africa. Burnett is the producer behind tons of shows like Survivor, The Apprentice, to name a few.

You may remember HM Stanley’s quote “Dr. Livingstone, I presume.” This show is about 4 modern-day explorers retracing Stanley‘s journey across Africa 130 years ago to find Dr. David Livingstone. They do so with nothing but a compass and old maps (and I guess a camera crew following them but let’s not go there…ha ha).

The trailer is playing in most cinemas nationwide, before movies like Star Trek and a lot of the other big summer movies. So if you go out and watch a movie, you might see it in surround sound!! Many of the other commercials are airing on various networks, so if you see some of them, they were from me!! Enjoy!

    I’m sorry I have to start off your comment board
    on a bad note but that’s exactly what Expedition
    Africa is a big Bored Fest . Ask yourself this how can four rather dull lumps turn such an Exciting time in History into a nothingness ! Easy their there ! The best part
    is the first day they start their “Expedition” with
    no water ! Then they can’t find their way out of the mangrove swamp ( I can’t believe I’m saying this but where Bear Grylis when you need him ?)
    The show should be about the Masi Warriors –
    Lov it when one says that he can’t get lost in the bush – Ahh Masi Warriors don’t leave home without them ! Do us all a favor and put the spear to good use Lol…..

      Welcome, Humbolt! No apologies needed if you found the show boring. I welcome all opinions here as long as they’re respectfully and intelligently articulated.

      I must admit I didn’t watch the show since my brother only edited and produced the trailers and didn’t have anything to do with the actual program. I didn’t know who the Masi Warriors were so I looked them up and think a show about them would be interesting!
