BIG Media Prepping Another Docuseries with ZDF Studios


BIG Media is producing its second title under the multiseries output deal the company signed with ZDF Studios, entitled Wild Science.

Wild Science will focus on the science behind some of the planet’s wild predators. Each episode of the eight-parter sheds light on the intricate behaviors, survival strategies and unique superpowers of each animal.

The deal, which was signed in December 2023, covers German-speaking territories. Additional licensing deals for Wild Science outside of those territories are currently in the works.

“For Wild Science, we enlisted a team of professionals to deploy the latest advances in AI and realistic 3D rendering to transform nature’s most formidable creatures into graphic models that reveal the mechanics of each animal, far beyond the limits of what a camera lens can deliver,” said BIG Media’s Martin Kaše. “An impressive production like this could not be possible without the editorial and financial support of our partners at ZDF Studios. We’re excited to work with them once again.”

Nikolas Huelbusch, Director Unscripted at ZDF Studios, added, “BIG Media continues to be a fantastic partner to ZDF Studios. Our output deal with them affords us the opportunity to get involved with productions from a first-look standpoint, and be involved from development to the fruition of the production. WILD SCIENCE is exciting because it fits so well in our wheelhouse. We know the viewers across the territories we serve will love it.”
