David Attenborough will front exciting new wildlife series on BBC One
The BBC has announced a new wildlife series from the team behind Planet Earth II.
The five-part Dynasty will be fronted by the nation’s favourite David Attenborough and will follow various animals from a lion to a chimpanzee as the series explores how different species protect their family and territory.
BBC director of content, Charlotte Moore, said: “The wonderful David Attenborough will inspire audiences once again when he brings the natural world to life with Dynasty.
“Four years in the making, capturing extraordinary family dynamics and behaviour, I hope these intimate animal dramas will connect with audiences just as Blue Planet II and Planet Earth II did.”
Mike Gunton, executive producer, added: “After making Planet Earth II it’s very exciting to now have the chance to show another, and I think even more intense and gripping, perspective on the lives of our planets most impressive, yet vulnerable creatures.”
“Dynasty is such a distinctive series, with a completely unique approach to bringing the audience into the lives of these iconic animals,” Tom McDonald, head of commissioning for natural history and specialist factual at the BBC, explained.
“I’m thrilled that Sir David will be bringing his extraordinary storytelling to this incredibly ambitious, landmark project – a gripping portrait of our planet at a tipping point for the animals, their habitats and our world.”
Dynasty will debut later this year on BBC One.
