BBC Studios Joins Forces with MIGU Video for Animal Impossible


China Mobile’s video platform MIGU Video is set to co-produce Animal Impossible, a ten-part series produced by BBC Studios’ Natural History Unit.

In Animal Impossible, presenters Tim Warwood and Adam Gendle head out on a journey of discovery as they investigate the assumptions and implications behind various facts and myths. Among the questions they seek to answer are: Can an eagle lift a child? Is spider silk stronger than steel? Do bulls hate the color red? Animal Impossible is a BBC Studios Natural History Unit Production, co-produced with MIGU Video and BBC Studios Distribution.

Kelvin Yau, general manager of BBC Studios in Greater China, said: “MIGU Video is an important strategic partner to us in this region. As well as our existing content deal we are actively working with them to explore co-production and co-development opportunities and we expect Animal Impossible to be one of many such agreements going forward as we look to further strengthen our relationship across many levels.”

Zhang Ge, general manager of the copyrights department for MIGU Video, said: “Animal Impossible will travel around the world in its quest to unravel some of the biggest myths about the animal kingdom and I’m delighted that MIGU Video is part of this development. BBC Studios has been a tremendous partner in delivering premium content to our Chinese audience, and we are happy to now play a part in developing more Chinese stories for the world.”
