National Geographic Picks Up Predator Land


National Geographic, through a deal with DRG, has acquired the natural-history series Predator Land.

Produced by South Africa’s Obsessively Creative, the three-part series delves into the lives of some of Africa’s most predatory animals, exploring how they hunt, eat, live, think and hunt with others. Predator Land’s first episode focuses on two lion prides, the second on leopards and the final on both wild dogs and cheetahs. The docuseries was filmed in the wildernesses of the Luangwa Valley, the Kalahari Desert and Kruger National Park. It will be broadcast on Nat Geo WILD starting in June 2019.

Scott Kirkpatrick, DRG’s senior VP of North and South America, said, “National Geographic is the premier destination for wildlife content, so we are delighted that Predator Land has been acquired and will be broadcast across its Nat Geo Wild network to more than 160 territories. Predator content is eternally popular, but new behaviors and the very latest in scientific research and thinking are vital to attract viewers. In Predator Land, with its impeccable mix of stunning photography, new science and incredible predator behavior, Obsessively Creative has succeeded in producing a distinctive wildlife miniseries that is destined to both inform and entertain audiences worldwide.”
