Apple TV+ unveils ‘landmark’ doc series

Paul Rudd narrates Apple TV+’s Tiny World

Apple TV+ has revealed more details of its exclusive documentary series, which have Hollywood stars Olivia Colman, Tom Hiddleston and Paul Rudd on board as narrators.

Tiny World, Becoming You and Earth At Night In Color see the tech giant focusing on the natural world and human development and will be released in more than 100 countries on Apple TV+ this fall.

Each new Apple original will showcase never-before-seen footage, groundbreaking technology and dynamic storytelling, Apple said.

Tiny World, which launches on October 2, is narrated by Rudd and explores the ingenuity and resilience of the smallest animals on the planet.

It is produced by Plimsoll Productions and written and executive produced by Tom Hugh Jones. Dr Martha Holmes and Grant Mansfield also serve as executive producers on behalf of Plimsoll Productions.

Global child development series Becoming You

Becoming You, meanwhile, will arrive on November 13 and sees Colman narrate a global child development series that explores how the first 2,000 days on Earth shape the rest of our lives.

Told through the eyes of more than 100 children around the world, from Nepal to Japan and Borneo, each episode offers a thought-provoking look at how children learn to think, speak and move from birth to the age of five.

The series is produced by Wall to Wall Media and is executive produced by Leanne Klein and Hamo Forsyth.

Earth At Night In Color, which launches on December 4, is described as a landmark natural history series and uses next-generation cameras to reveal the nocturnal lives of animals in colour for the first time.

Filmed on six continents, from the Arctic Circle to the African grasslands, the series is narrated by Hiddleston and follows the dramas of animals at night, revealing new insights and never-before-seen behaviour.
