Love Nature tracks down wildlife projects from WildBear, Off the Fence, Big Wave

Biologist Lizzie Daly fronts Deep Dive North America

Blue Ant’s wildlife and nature brand Love Nature has unveiled a slate of new commissions, including a two-parter about snow leopards from Off the Fence and a pair of projects from WildBear Entertainment.

Snow Leopards with Dan O’Neill (2×50’) follows the wildlife filmmaker as he goes on an extreme conservation mission to the mountains of Kyrgzstan and Mongolia to reveal the hunting behaviour, social dynamics and territorial range of these elusive animals.

Deep Dive North America (6×60’), produced by UK-based Big Wave Productions, sees wildlife host and biologist Lizzie Daly team up with US-based experts and marine research institutions to examine the marine life of North America. The project is a spin-off from Love Nature’s Deep Dive Australia, which also comes from Big Wave Productions.

Australian prodco Wildbear Entertainment is producing Boss Shark (1×60’), a co-commission with Discovery, and Wild Sky (4×60’) for Love Nature.

Boss Shark trails a team of shark specialists, including Dr Riley Elliot and Kori Burkhardt, in the waters off New Zealand’s Stewart Island to study the world’s largest and most accessible pack of great white sharks to discover who’s the boss.

Wild Sky, produced by natural history filmmaker Dr Chadden Hunter, traverses four continents to examine weather systems and meet animals that face the elements head on.

Blue Ant Studios’ rights division is overseeing pre-sales and licensing outside of commissioning territories for all the titles.

“Infusing our original programming with new talent who are leading the world in wildlife filmmaking offers a key point of distinction for Love Nature’s natural history programming,” said Carlyn Staudt, general manager of Love Nature and head of commissioning, global media at Blue Ant Media.

“The hosts and other human characters in these series ignite a sense of curiosity and wonder and act as guides who unlock perspectives on nature and wildlife stories audiences wouldn’t hear of otherwise.”
