Discovery Communications' CEO David Zaslav is expanding the company's strategy and investment plans for Russia. It includes the launch of TLC, the company's flagship female channel, in January 2011.
One of the new Russian productions is "Like Mother, Like Daughter," in which a duo gets a makeover. Ivan Zatevakhin, one of Russia's famed natural historians and TV presenters, will voice the
channel's "Extreme Fishing," while comedy duo Garik Harlamov and Timur Batrutdinov, voice a new series "Dual Survival" over the next few months, among other programs.
