Discovery to make Everest avalanche documentary from scrapped live jump footage

Discovery’s ambitious Everest adventure will still result in a special that will air on the network.

After scrapping plans Sunday  to air Joby Ogwyn leaping from the summit in a wing-suit, the cable network has decided to create a documentary about last week’s avalanche tragedy instead.

NBC News’ Peacock Production was set to produce the special and was already filming Ogwyn at Everest base camp when the avalanche struck, killing at least 13 people and injuring more. Several of those killed were Sherpas hired by producers for the special. The cable network confirmed Deadline’s report that the network will air a one or two-hour special using its footage from the mountain. Discovery intends for the special to honor the Sherpas who lost their lives, as well encourage donations to a charity fund.
