BBC America Prebuys Two Love Nature Originals


Blue Ant International has secured a presale deal with BBC America for two Love Nature original documentary productions, including Chasing the Rains.

The four-part Chasing the Rains takes audiences on a journey into one of the most majestic, unspoiled and rarely filmed areas of wilderness in Africa. Narrated by Adjoa Andoh (Bridgerton, Invictus), the series follows three animal matriarchs as they attempt to overcome incredible obstacles to protect their families during one of Africa’s worst droughts in 20 years.

BBC America previously picked up the four-part Africa’s Wild Year, set over the course of a single year in ten different countries in Africa. Each episode focuses on one of the four seasons and reveals how animals adapt to sweeping weather variations across the continent.

“I can’t think of a better home for two of our most stunning documentaries coming out of the Love Nature brand,” said Bryan Gabourie, senior VP of international sales and partnerships at Blue Ant International. “I am thrilled to see this partnership with BBC America grow across premium documentaries in the natural wildlife space. As Love Nature continues to expand their original blue-chip programs, we see more opportunities with this valued partner in the future.”
