The series is an example of National Geographic’s expanding portfolio premium digital content that will be published and promoted across all platforms, including a special broadcast premiere on Nat Geo Wild.
“This new season of Wild Life is a perfect example of our strategy for giving our audiences visual, purpose-driven stories that showcase the beauty of our planet, on whatever channels they choose to engage us on, and our commitment to inspiring them to explore, care for and better understand it,” said Jonathan Hunt, senior VP of digital strategy for National Geographic Partners. “Wild Life is a perfect example of how an original series filmed by a young, talented storyteller can innovate the natural history genre across both digital and traditional channels.”
