Love Nature forecasts Stormborn trilogy

Stormborn focses on wildlife surviving a year on the edges of the North Atlantic

Natural history broadcaster Love Nature 4K has greenlit a blue-chip documentary trilogy from Scottish production company Maramedia.

Produced in association with US cablenet Smithsonian Channel, pubcaster Arte France, BBC Scotland and Screen Scotland, Stormborn (working title) tells the story of “a dramatic breeding year” in the wildlands of countries on the edge of the North Atlantic.

The show follows animals including otters, arctic foxes and reindeer as they struggle to make homes, find mates and raise their young amid the towering seas and fierce storms on the northern edges of the Atlantic Ocean.

Production has already begun and will continue until November in locations including Norway, Iceland and the Shetland Islands off Scotland.

Nigel Pope and Jackie Savery direct and produce, with Tria Thalman and David Royle exec producing for Smithsonian and Alison Barrat exec producing for Love Nature.

The 3×50′ series will premiere on Love Nature’s linear and streaming video platforms internationally in 2020, before debuting on Smithsonian, BBC Scotland and Arte in France and Germany.

Blue Ant International, sister company to Love Nature 4K, will oversee licensing of the series, which is now available for pre-sale.

“Showcasing these unusual and charismatic species as they battle the wild climate of the North will help us a build a narrative that’s alive with beauty, danger, and savage drama,” said Pope and Savery, directors at Maramedia.
