Earth Touch Inks Deals With Nat Geo Wild For Factual Series & Three Specials

Cobra MafiaEarth Touch is teaming with National Geographic.

The production company, which specialises in wildlife and factual programming, has inked a slew of deals with the broadcaster which will see Earth Touch produce a three-part series titled Predator Fail and co-produce three one-off specials (March of The Elephants, Blood Rivals: Lion Vs. Buffalo and Cobra Mafia) for the international Nat Geo Wild channels, TVWise has learned.

The three part series Predator Fail , which is set to air internationally on Nat Geo WILD in 2015, explores the side of the attempted kills they never usually see, when predator’s fail. “Predator Fail will bring our viewers the predator chase they love allowing us to transport them directly to the wild for a front row seat at all the action”, said Janet Han Vissering, Senior Vice President of Development & Production for Nat Geo WILD.

The first of the three specials, March of The Elephants, follows the journey of a herd through the Kalahari Desert past as forbidden swamp guarded by lions to the haven of the Okavango Delta. While Blood Rivals: Lion Vs. Buffalo examines the almost militaristic manoeuvres employed by both animals in Africa; and Cobra Mafia looks at the tight-knit group of reptiles that are such a force across Africa and Asia.

“National Geographic is a great supporter of our programming, and we are looking forward to seeing this relationship flourish further in the coming year, resulting in a fresh crop of world-class factual television”, added Chris Fletcher, Earth Touch’s Director of Sales and Programming.
