Discovery Channel President Eileen O'Neill said that the network will not shy away from covering dangerous situations, in the wake of an avalanche at Mount Everest that claimed 13 lives and caused Discovery to cancel its planned “Everest Jump Live.” “There certainly have been inherently deadly situations that we've been a part of for either documentaries or for series,” O'Neill told TheWrap. “Discovery has always documented the world in good environments and in really extreme and tough environments,” she added.
