Fremantle to Take New Wall to Wall Wildlife Series Global


Fremantle has signed a deal with Wall to Wall Media to distribute the new wildlife documentary series Islands: Nature’s Wild Laboratories across the globe.

Across six episodes, the series captures six islands where animals adapt to survive. It takes viewers deep inside these unique ecosystems, traveling from Canada’s Arctic Baffin Island to Vancouver Island; the tropical paradises of Borneo, Sri Lanka and Australian K’Gari; and the wild delta of Botswana’s Okavango Islands.

The series will be presented at Fremantle’s London Screenings event on March 3 and is set to premiere in the U.K. on Sky Nature later this year.

Céire Clark, senior acquisitions manager of international at Fremantle, said: “Islands is a visually stunning wildlife documentary series that we are very proud of. The series boasts blue-chip specialist 4K HDR filming and is full of surprising stories about animals that audiences may not be so familiar with. The inimitable Wall to Wall has done a great job of expanding our view of the natural world, and we can’t wait to bring Islands to a global audience.”

Dominic Weston, executive producer at Wall to Wall Media, said: “In Islands: Nature’s Wild Laboratories, we wanted to make the island itself central to the story, rather than just another place to film wildlife, so the way we approached filming, editing, writing and composing is all geared to bring each island’s unique character across. Not only can viewers enjoy seeing how incredible animals adapt to survive, but the series is interspersed with stylized 3D hybrid graphics that vividly depict how each unique island was formed thousands of years ago. We’re thrilled that Fremantle shares our vision of bringing Islands to a global audience.”
