FilmRise has partnered with Wilderness Productions to bring episodes of Brave Wilderness to AVOD and SVOD platforms, including FilmRise Streaming Network.
Brave Wilderness is a series on YouTube that sees wildlife experts Nathanial “Coyote” Peterson, Mark Vins and Mario Aldecoa come face-to-face with wildlife around the world to inspire curiosity and advocate for the natural world. The brand has nearly 20 million subscribers on the platform.
FilmRise’s Digital Native Content division will create 30-minute episodes from Brave Wilderness’s channel to expand viewership outside of YouTube.
Max Einhorn, senior VP of acquisitions and co-productions at FilmRise, said: “We’re absolutely enamored by the weird and wild world Coyote and the Brave Wilderness team inhabit, creating a family-friendly brand viewers will be excited to stream from their living rooms. We are excited to use our streaming expertise and infrastructure to help Wilderness Productions access new audiences, generate new revenue streams and further build their business overall.”
Beau Sedivy, chief operating officer of Wilderness Productions, commented: “We couldn’t be more excited to partner with FilmRise, taking our series to AVOD, SVOD. Nature is a universal language, and we are thrilled to be able to offer Brave Wilderness as a TV series to audiences around the world on streaming platforms.
