Amazon Studios has announced The Pack, a new global unscripted series that celebrates the unrivaled bond between dogs and their human companions. Hosted by Olympic gold medalist Lindsey Vonn and her canine co-host Lucy, the series features twelve teams of dogs and their humans on an epic adventure across multiple continents. Filmed earlier this year, Amazon Original series The Pack will premiere later in 2020 on Amazon Prime Video in more than 200 countries and territories.
Lindsey Vonn is the most decorated American skier, but her real love is being mom to her three world-traveling dogs. Lucy, a Cavalier King Charles with personality plus, was born in Italy and joined her two brothers, Leo and Bear, in 2016. In a few short years, Lindsey and Lucy’s bond has grown, and together they lead The Pack, a global competition that celebrates the unique bond between dogs and humans.
"I have overcome many obstacles in life, but one thing that has reigned true during good times and bad has been the love of my dogs," said Lindsey Vonn. "Like many times before, Lucy will be by my side on yet another one of life's adventures, and I'm excited for everyone to watch and cheer on these incredible contestants and their beloved companions."
At stake is a life-changing monetary prize for the winning duo ($500,000) and the animal charity of their choice ($250,000). Additionally, The Pack donated $250,000 during filming to multiple charities and animal rescue organizations in each country, helping to pay it forward to dogs and those who love them around the world. To win the monetary prize for themselves and their charity, the teams will have to depend on their understanding of one another's strengths and weaknesses and prove to have the strongest bond in the pack. In each locale, the human and dog duos will face fun and exciting challenges, designed in concert with a team of accredited veterinarians and certified dog experts that also accompany the group on their exciting journey, making sure it is a positive experience for everyone. The Pack is produced by Amazon Studios and Renegade 83, an Entertainment One company. Jay Bienstock with Jay Renfroe and David Garfinkle of Renegade 83 serve as Executive Producers.
"The Pack is an uplifting and exhilarating new unscripted series, celebrating one of the most unique and universally-recognized relationships we have - between people and their best friends," said Albert Cheng, Co-Head of Television at Amazon Studios. "Our Amazon Prime customers around the world will go on an adventure unlike any other as these impressive dogs and their humans navigate challenges as teams, making a difference along the way. The Pack is a great addition to our growing slate of global competition series.
Apparently the show ill be sponsored by Cesar, beloved of small dogs. "We're thrilled to be partnering with Amazon Prime Video and 'The Pack' to show consumers the amazing bond between pet parents and their dogs," said Andy Van Ark, Cesar Brand Manager. "The new series shares the many adventures of pet ownership, and the Cesar brand wanted to take part in highlighting those shared moments with our dogs – from incredible feats, to the simple joys of spending time together."
