Netflix is collaborating with Silverback Films and WWF on a new eight part natural history series made by the creators of the critically and popularly acclaimed series Planet Earth.
The new series, Our Planet, will premiere across all Netflix territories in 2019.
The ambitious four year project will take viewers into never-before-filmed wilderness areas from the ice caps and deep ocean to deserts and remote forests. Using the latest in 4K camera technology, the series and a range of specially produced storytelling for multi-media platforms will bring millions of people into intimate contact with some of the world’s rarest animals and most precious natural habitats.
“Netflix is proud to be the global home for perhaps Silverback’s most ambitious project to date,” comments Lisa Nishimura, Vice President, Netflix Original Documentaries. “The Planet projects have enjoyed great success on Netflix and have helped launch new technologies for viewing at home. We think watching Our Planet, fully on demand in 4K will be an unforgettable experience for our members.”
