Nat Geo bags Earth Touch wildlife
Snake City (aka Snakes in the City) is heading to Nat Geo Wild
US cablenet Nat Geo Wild has picked up a number of wildlife programmes, including rescue reality show Snake City, from factual producer and distributor Earth Touch.
Snake City is joining Nat Geo Wild’s schedules alongside miniseries World’s Deadliest Snakes (3×60’) and standalone documentaries Unholy Alliance, Queen of Taru, and Cheetah: Queen of Cats.
The National Geographic Partners-owned network has bagged all seven 6×60’ seasons of Snake City as well as securing the global rights, excluding the US, to World’s Deadliest Snakes.
Queen of Taru follows the life of a wild Bengal Tiger living in the Tadoba Andhari tiger reserve. It was filmed over five years and is produced by wildlife photographer and filmmaker Aishwarya Sridhar.
Unholy Alliance follows a hyena and a young female leopard who overcome their natural enmity to form a partnership, while Cheetah: Queen of Cats is a window into the life of a female cheetah. Both documentaries are original Earth Touch productions.
Chris Fletcher, Earth Touch director of sales and programming, said: “Nat Geo Wild is a fantastic and valued partner of ours, we appreciate their continued support and commitment to celebrating the natural world on screen.
“We are proud to be working with a diverse array of voices in the wildlife world – from the aspiring young naturalist Aishwarya Sridhar and her beautiful portrait of a tigress in Queen of Taru, to Snake City’s Simon and Siouxsie and their ongoing quest to rescue every errant reptile under the Durban sun.”
