Love Nature 4K Orders A Wild Year on Earth & Dawn to Dusk


Love Nature 4K has greenlit two new blue-chip, specialist-factual series for its linear and online channels: A Wild Year on Earth and Dawn to Dusk.

A Wild Year on Earth, produced by Northern Pictures and narrated by Laura Carmichael (Downton Abbey, The Spanish Princess), takes a look at how our planet’s most spectacular natural events interconnect with all life on earth over the course of a turbulent year. Produced by NHNZ, Dawn to Dusk examines the daily life cycles of fascinating creatures as they unfold all over the world. Blue Ant International will oversee the licensing of both six-part series, which are now available for pre-sale.

Carlyn Staudt, executive VP of programming and development at Love Nature 4K, said: “A Wild Year on Earth and Dawn to Dusk offer multifaceted perspectives of nature, and its inhabitants, around the world. These two commissions truly connect with our mission at Love Nature to deliver powerful wildlife and nature stories that give audiences a deeper understanding of our planet.”

Ward Platt, CEO of kids and global networks at Blue Ant Media, said: “A Wild Year on Earth and Dawn to Dusk are commissioned, produced and distributed by Blue Ant Media and add to Love Nature 4K’s compelling line-up of programming as we continue to expand the brand’s footprint across the globe with new channels and content partnerships.”

Ludo Dufour, senior VP of international co-productions and sales at Blue Ant International, said: “These stunning blue-chip natural history titles, which are delivering in September of this year, are already attracting widespread interest from key U.S. commissioners and we’re looking forward to making them available to additional broadcasters worldwide.”
